In addition to the kebab and rarely in place of it, we would be offered special stews. These were the items on the menu that I treasured the most.
Chicken with Pomegranate Sauce (Khoreshe Fesenjan). If you click on the recipe title, you'll go to the post on this blog.
Lamb Khoresht with Split Peas and Fried Potatoes.
Fresh Herb Stew (Khoresh-e Qormeh Sabzi).
Eggplant with Traditional Whey. I made a double recipe for a recent dinner party. It was the favorite dish of the meal.
