Acanthus stew (Khoresht-e Kangar)
Acanthus stew is one of the popular spring foods. Acanthus is a vegetable having potassium and helping the digestion in our body, so I recommend you for using it in your diet to both enjoy and benefit.
Chop the onion and fry it well. Then add turmeric and pepper.
You can use lamb or beef meat for this recipe. Add chopped meat to sauté onion and stir-fry them until slightly change the color. The point is for stir-frying meats we have to keep the heat in medium.
Now add enough water to the meat and let them cook in medium heat.
Next, stir-fry vegetables, do not fry them too much or they will become bitter.
Wash well and clean acanthus. As you see in the picture.
Fry acanthus a few seconds with butter to taste.
After about one and a half hours, add vegetables and acanthus to the semi-cooked meat and let them cook together and fit in well.
Add some lemon juice or other flavor and some salt. Your stew is ready to serve and enjoy. Bon Appetite
