    Sue Lau's Note:

    Khoresh Bademjan is one of the more popular types or khoresh, which is a sauce including meats and vegetables that is served over fragrant rice. It is not really like a stew, since stews are served on their own, but the sauce resembles stew and those who enjoy stew will probably enjoy this as well. Recipe adapted from a recipe by Barb.

      VERY good! I was looking for a recipe similar to a dish I enjoy at a local Persian restaurant, and this comes pretty close. Two thumbs up!
