There are lots of options when you buy hookahs

There’s a lot of choice at Pars market when you buy a hookah. There are 4 hose hookah, 2 Hose Hookah, Single hose Hookah, mini hookah, exotic hookah, Wooden hookah, Syrian Hookah and so on and so on at Pars Market.
Think about several things before you buy.

1. How big a hookah do you want?

Big ones look great but maybe you’ll want to carry it from place to place it which case a mini hookah might be better.

2. How many people will be smoking?

If it’s just for you then a one hose is fine, but if you have lots of friends that also enjoy relaxing hookah times then you might want to think about 2, 3, or even 4 hose hookah..

3. What style of hookah do you want?

Traditional hookah look fantastic in my opinion but so do some of the Modern hookahs. Best to have a good look around before you buy hookah.

Pars Market Hookah and Shisha Store in Columbia Maryland

I love Hookah and I love smoking it so much….more I talk about hookah I still feel I have a lot more to say out! Let’s talk more and enjoy talking about it as well as smoking Hookah with friends and family!

A Hookah is a water pipe that is used mainly by Middle Eastern countries for smoking tobacco, mainly flavored tobacco, such as Shisha. Traditional hookahs are elaborately decorated with gold or brass and often sport ornate carvings and designs.

The Wonder of The Hookah

A Hookah is a water pipe that is used mainly by Middle Eastern countries for smoking tobacco, mainly flavored tobacco, such as Shisha. Traditional hookahs are elaborately decorated with gold or brass and often sport ornate carvings and designs. They are traditionally made from glass but can also be made from plastic or even. They have a long stem with a large Bowl at the top where the tobacco is placed.

From the stem are several long hoses that enable several people to enjoy the hookah at once. Water is placed in the stem and, when the bowl of tobacco is lit, the smoke is then filtered through the water and into the lungs of each person inhaling from each hose.

The practice of using hookahs is very popular in countries like Iran and other Arab countries but it is also popular in European countries, as well, and even the United States.

Greengages or Green Plum now is available at Pars Market in Columbia Maryland 21045

Another awesome seasonal fruit for Spring time is now here at Pars Market Because Its the time of the year yet again when all kinds of exotic Iranian fruits are beginning to show up in abundance. The local calls it ‘nobaraneh‘…indulging in their favorite fruits of the early season. 

 

 Gojeh sabz, or unripened greengages or Green Plums, (in Arabic: Jenerick and Turkish: Erik) are as popular in Iran as, let’s say, strawberries are in the USA.

Gojeh sabz, or unripened greengages or Green Plums, (in Arabic: Jenerick and Turkish: Erik) are as popular in Iran as, let’s say, strawberries are in the USA.

 

 Most commonly Iranians wash them and sprinkle them with salt to enjoy as a cheek-suckingly sharp snack. They look forward with child-like glee to the first gojeh of spring, and scrabble to get their fill.

 

 

 The sour cherry plum...Goje sabz, literally translated as green tomato or sour green plums, is said to grow mainly in the mountain areas of Iran. Karaj, in the western part of Tehran is also considered as one of the main growing and producing areas. This self fertile round green plums is often picked before it is fully ripe and eaten fresh or cooked by itself or with sour cherries. The local usually eat them sprinkled and spiced with salt and hence are made into 'goje sabz,' a popular pastime indulgence especially among the ladies.

This yellow-fleshed fruit is juicy and very rich in flavor. A honeyed taste explosion occurs when you bite into one. They are beautiful to observe as they turn from greenish-yellow to golden yellow and, finally, when fully ripe, a rose blush appears on the surface of the fruit. 

 

 Gojeh sabz should be in season at Pars Market for another couple of weeks or so…

 Here’s a recipe about making Tagine with Ras el Hanout. Which you can find all the spices and ingredients for this delicious dish at Pars Market!

 

Ingredients:

  • 3 Tbs. ras el hanout
  • 1 Tbs. sweet paprika
  • 1 tsp. salt, plus more, to taste
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground pepper, plus more, to taste
  • 3 lb. short ribs, cut into serving pieces, external fat trimmed to 1/4 inch
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1/2 large yellow onion, diced
  • 2 carrots, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup cubed peeled butternut squash
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine, such as Syrah
  • 1 cup canned diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup beef or chicken broth, plus more, as needed
  • 1 Tbs. honey (optional)

For the spiced couscous:

  • 2 cups couscous
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. ground turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt, plus more, to taste
  • 1/4 cup dried currants
  • 1 tsp. finely grated orange zest
  • 2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

Directions:

In a small bowl, stir together the ras el hanout, paprika, the 1 tsp. salt and 1 tsp. pepper. Rub the mixture over the short ribs, coating them evenly. Let stand at room temperature for 30 to 60 minutes.

Preheat an oven to 350°F.

Heat a large, heavy fry pan over medium heat. Pour in the olive oil and heat until the surface shimmers. Add the short ribs and brown on all sides, about 8 minutes total. Transfer to a plate.

Pour off all but 2 Tbs. of the fat in the pan. Add the onion, carrots, squash and garlic and cook, stirring often, until the onion begins to brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the wine, stirring to scrape up the browned bits from the pan bottom. Add the tomatoes and the 1/2 cup stock.

Transfer the mixture to a tagine. Add the short ribs, pushing them down into the vegetables. Cover the tagine, transfer to the oven and bake until the meat is very tender, about 2 1/2 hours.

Meanwhile, prepare the spiced couscous: Rinse the couscous in a fine-mesh sieve under cold running water. Set aside to drain for 15 minutes.

Fill the bottom compartment of the couscoussiere halfway with water, making sure the water does not touch the steam tray above. Set over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Spread the couscous out on a baking sheet and aerate by lightly rubbing the clumps between your palms and raking your fingers through the couscous.

Line the steam tray with a piece of cheesecloth. Brush the cheesecloth with 1 Tbs. of the olive oil. Place the couscous on the cheesecloth. Cover the couscoussiere and steam for 20 minutes. Again, spread the couscous out on a baking sheet. In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining 1 Tbs. olive oil, 1/4 cup cold water, the turmeric and the 1/2 tsp. salt. Sprinkle the liquid over the couscous and aerate with your fingers, breaking up any lumps.

Make sure there is still water in the lower compartment, then return the couscous to the lined steam tray. Cover and steam for 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer the couscous to a serving bowl. Using a spoon, gently fold in the currants, orange zest and lemon juice, and season with salt and pepper. Cover with aluminum foil and let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

Transfer the short ribs to a plate and cover with aluminum foil. Let the sauce cool for 5 minutes, then skim the fat off the surface. If the sauce is too thick, stir in more stock, 2 Tbs. at a time. Stir in the honey, and adjust the seasonings with salt and pepper.

Divide the spiced couscous among warmed bowls. Top with the short ribs and sauce and serve immediately. Serves 4 to 6.

Turkish Allepo / Marash Pepper Spice and more selection of Herbs at Pars Market LLC Columbia Maryland 21045

  Maras (Marash) pepper adds wonderful flavor to food, a fruity kind of heat that goes with almost every savory dish…

 

 

 Marash Pepper has perfectly balanced heat and amazing flavor, sweet and rich and almost smoky. This Turkish crushed chili has an ancho-like flavor with a little more heat and tartness. It’s chunkier than paprika, so the flavor pops more.Use it in the oil for roasted potatoes, on baked winter squash, in the batter for corn bread or dough for cheese wafers, in the dry rub for cured duck legs; as a substitute for cayenne or hot red pepper flakes.

 If you are looking for a chilli with snap, this certainly tops that category. Marash is one of the largest city in Turkey by Syrian border. Compare to crushed pepper, Marash chilli peppers are as hot if not hotter, tasty without the lingering taste, without the seeds, very tasty but certainly salty. Sparkling color. Excellent with everything specially on Avocados, sprats, melted cheese and a good stone grounded wheat tortilla. Marash Pepper works real well for marinading any foods specially soups and stews and it could be often be used as a spicier substitute for paprika!

Buying Hookah, Shisha, Charcoal at Pars Market Columbia Maryland 21045

It is extremely important that you know how to check a Hookah before you purchase it, because no matter what country it comes from, there is a certain percentage of hookahs that are defective.

Start with the bowl on top. Inspect for chips and an ovular opening where it connects to your hookah. If the the opening of the bowl is ovular, it might not seal tightly when sitting on top of the hookah. Next, look for obstructions in the holes of the bowl. Sometimes, during the glazing process, the holes are covered up or clogged. You will also want to make sure that the bowl fits snugly. You should be able to jerk the hookah a little bit and not have any movement on the bowl. If it does seems to wobble a bit, try to turn it in a clockwise fashion as you push it down over the gasket.

Take the hose off and plug one end with your thumb as you blow through the other end. Listen carefully for any air leaks. If there are any air leaks, the hose has a hole in it. Now, unplug one end and point it at a bare patch of skin that is not on your face (you may get a chunk of rust right into your eye). You should feel a good amount of air coming out. If the amount of air coming out feels weak, the hose has obstructions.

Check the stem for breaks or damage by holding the stem up like a looking glass and pointing the opposite end toward the light.

Unscrew the check release valve to make sure it has a ball bearing.

To check the air flow of the rest of the Hookah, make sure it is assembled with the stem, vase, vase gasket, hose, and hose gasket. You will need to remove the bowl and bowl gasket if it is on top of the stem. Use your hand or a piece of cloth to clog the top of the hookah stem. Suck through the hose and listen carefully for air leaks. You should not be able to take any air in. Common air leaks occur near the hose port around the weld lines. With the top of the hookah stem still clogged, blow into the hose. Air should be expelled out of the check release valve.

Make sure the vase is not wobbly and that the top opening is not ovular. Also, look for cracks and chips in the glass. 

At Pars Market we have sold over Thousands of Hookah since day first opened up and everyone who purchased the Hookah from us was a Happy customer!
