food-dizi

Abgoosht (Persian: آبگوشت‎‎ Ābgusht, literally “meat juice”) is a Persian and Mesopotamian stew. It is also called Dizi (Persian: دیزی‎‎), which refers to the traditional stone crocks it is served in. Some describe it as a “hearty mutton soup thickened with chickpeas.”[1] Ābgoosht is usually made with lamb, chickpeas, white beans, onion, potatoes, and tomatoes, turmeric, and dried lime. Other variations exist in the beans used, such as kidney beans and black-eyed peas.[2] The ingredients are combined together and cooked until done, at which point the dish is strained. The solids are then mashed as Gusht Kubideh (Persian: گوشت کوبیده‎‎, literally “mashed meat”) and served with the broth, but in a separate dish, along with flatbread. It is a form of Piti, which encompasses many similar dishes in the region.
