The growing of semeni - green sprouting wheat - is the most sacred Novruz ceremony as the herald of spring. Sprouting semeni symbolises sowing and a rich harvest, it represents grain, bread, increase and abundance. Grain and abundance is a pledge of life, existence, the most vital material necessity for life.[1] People have always grown semeni from wheat, barley, peas, lentils or other grains in copper dishes; they have always revered it and rejoiced at its sprouting.

Samanu[edit]

Samanu is a sweet paste made entirely from germinated wheat from young wheatgrass, which is prepared for Nowruz (new year celebrations) in a large pot (kazan) in Middle East and Central Asian and some other countries.
