Torshi Tareh or Sour Herb Stew is a traditional stew recipe from Northern Province of Iran and it would be perfect if served with Persian Rice.

Yield: Serves 5

  • 200 g fresh coriander, finely chopped
  • 250 g fresh spinach, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons dried mint
  • 6 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 5 eggs
  • grape verjuice or lemon juice, based on taste (you can find grape verjuice at any Iranian store)
  • 8 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • salt & pepper to taste

Heat canola oil in a non-stick pot over medium heat. Add onions and saute until tender and slightly golden. Add garlic and turmeric powder; stir gently and saute for 1 minute. Add chopped coriander and chopped spinach; saute over medium heat for 15 minutes. Add dried mint, water, salt and pepper; cover the pot and cook over medium-low heat until tender, about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Dissolve flour in 3 tablespoons of cold water; pour it into the stew and stir. Add butter and grape verjuice or lemon juice based on taste (this stew should be sour, I added 1/3 cup verjuice but you can add more or less); stir well.

Crack the eggs into the center of the pot, do not stir.
