Fesenjan is my favourite Persian dish – it’s a delicious, slow-cooked stew of walnuts and pomegranates with either chicken or duck. I used to beg my grandma to make it when she came to visit us from Tehran every few years and the recipe has been passed on through the family since.
Fesenjan is so decadent, rich and particularly comforting during the winter, when I’d happily dive head first into a big bowl of it. There are more attractive dishes in Persian cooking than Fesenjan, however it’s a special meal that never fails to impress with its unique, aromatic flavours.
