Rich and complicated dish from Iran

This epic recipe is not easy. It has a Persian name: Khoresht fesenjan and chelow, and I’m told it’s a national dish. We call it Persian pomegranate and walnut stew with rice.

It is not for the faint of heart, but for the brave, for the sure, for those who care about family meals, who care about socializing with friends around a table heavy with nature’s bounty. A great dish to warm a wintry day. With the pomegranate super berry included, it must also be healthy, right?
