Sabzi khordan (Persian: سبزی خوردنPersian pronunciation: [sæbˌzi xoɾˈdæn]) or kanachi (Armenian: կանաչի) or Goy (Turkish: Yemax goyü) is a common side dish in Iranian, Turkish and Armenian cuisines, which may be served with any meal, consisted of any combination of a set of fresh herbs (سبزی sabzi) and raw vegetables. Basil, parsley, and radishes are among the most common ones.
