Fesenjan (Pomegranate Walnut Meatball Stew) with Basmati Rice
If you’re in the mood for a stew that is rich and unique in flavor, and just right for the spring season, Chef Mina’s Fesenjan is the dish for you! Fesenjan, an Iranian stew from the Gilan province, is flavored with pomegranate molasses and ground walnuts. The richness of the savory meatballs is complemented by the earthy flavors that originate from the ground walnuts and is accompanied with a hint of tangy flavor from the pomegranate. It is an orchestration of varying flavors, rich yet light, and is all tied together by the spices that return it back to tradition. The long-grain basmati rice adds to the variation in the texture of the dish, as the warm stew over the rice grants a flavorful balance.
