Khoresh-e fesenjan for short (sometimes spelt fesenjoon), is a stew (khoresh) from Iran. It is believed to originate from the Gilan region near the Caspian sea and has been around since the Persian empire. The Persian Walnut Stew, Fesenjan, or Fesenjoon is the pride of Iranian cuisine. Sweet, sour, tangy, and rich, none of them can describe the real taste of this Persian delicacy. Its magical aroma makes every hungry mouth drool, yet somehow inviting look is the perfect reminder of the paradoxical sweet/sour nature of Fesenjan.
