The combination of walnuts and pomegranate juice in a stew really fascinated me and I wanted to try it out. Once I did, I simply loved the flavors from the walnuts, spices, and the pomegranates. I got inspired by this dish, when I wanted to cook something traditional from the Persian Cuisine. I could not find much of vegetarian, hence decided to substitute the curry base with vegetables for Khoresht Fesenjan and I am glad I did.
