One cup herb mix of parsley, dill, cilantro and leek/green onion

(In Afghan and Iranian cooking, berberis (barberry) flavors rice dishes, known as polow (in Persian) and pilau (in Dari). In Iran it is used in kookoo-ye sabzi (an herb omelet) and zereshk polow (rice mixed with barberry served with chicken). In India, pickled barberries are served with curries or used like raisins in desserts.)
