Fry leeks lightly until soft. Add spinach and stir-fry for 5-10 minutes until soft and
well mixed. Add them to the stew with salt and pepper and let it simmer for 15 minutes.
Wash and cut in half the pitted prunes, and add to the stew a few minutes before serving.

Sweet and Sour Persian Stew - Fesenjan
2 large onions, chopped or sliced
2 table spoons cooking oil
2 1/2 cups toasted and finely ground walnuts
1/2 cup pomegranate sauce (Robe Anar) or 2 tbsp. pomegranate paste
1 whole chicken, cut up
2 cup water
1-2 teaspoon salt
1 cup dried yellow prunes (Aloo Bokhara), washed
Sauté the onions in the cooking oil until golden brown. Add the chicken parts to the
onions. Brown all sides. Add the salt. Add the prunes on top of the chicken. Add the
ground walnuts. Add the pomegranate sauce. Pour the water on top of the ingredients and
let them cook for 20 minutes. The color of the stew
will turn brown and some oil from the walnuts will gather on the top of the mixture. That
is when the stew is ready. Taste the stew and if the taste is too sour you may add some
sugar to taste.
Beef Stew - Abgousht
One cup of Garbanzo beans (nokhod) soaked 4-8 hours
One cup of dried white beans (loobia sefeed) soaked 4-8 hours
1/2 pound of meat with bones
One medium onion, peeled and quartered.
One medium potato, peeled.
Half a cup long grain rice.
One medium tomato.
One table spoon turmeric (zard-choobeh).
a small piece of black cardamom
Salt and pepper to the liking.
Two heads of whole dried lemons (leemoo-amAnee)
Wash the meat and put it in a medium size pot (deezee for traditionalists), half filled
with water, add the beans, the onion, turmeric, black cardamom, salt and pepper and let it
cook for 1-2 hours on medium-low heat. Next, add the potato, rice, and the tomato (they
get too soft too soon if you add them at the beginning), and let it cook on low heat until
all the ingredients are soft.
Strain the soup from the ingredients. Remove the bones from the strained ingredients. Mash
these ingredients finely. Taste a small portion and add more salt/pepper if needed. When
the mixture has a smooth texture, it can be served.
The soup (juice) is also served in a separate bowl. The idea is to mix it with small
pieces of flat bread like Naan.
At the table, this dish is served with Iranian bread, raw onions, radishes and fresh herbs
such as parsley, basil leaves, mint leaves, leeks, etc.
