    This is my second Iranian dish and my fiancé absolutely loved it! I soaked the kidney beans for 2 hours, next time I’ll try 3 because they were still a little hard so I let them boil in the stew for a bit longer. Also, I only used 3 small limoo’s because we don’t like too much of a sour taste to our food. I’d say maybe use a tad bit less of either cilantro or parsley as the taste was a little overwhelming for me.....but again my fiancé loved it! I let the stew sit for an additional 30 min more than the recipe called for and it was great, really got all the flavors to blend thoroughly. Served with a side of mast-o-khair yum! My fiancé is one happy guy!!

    Great meal for family, very tasty and wholesome. Great fragrance around house during and after! As always hard to get all the right ingredients. I’d always recommend alternatives for hard to get items ie dried limes!
