We recently ate at Chef Abbas in Gorinchem in his cozy restaurant. My google search for a Persian cuisine turned out absolutely amazing. Fantastic dishes. A passionate chef. Great. And this fesenjan stood head and shoulders above the rest. I asked for the recipe. I got the recipe. And I made it. Delicious. And the guests in our restaurant agreed.

Add the walnuts, fry them alternately. Pour in the water and bring to a boil. After 10 minutes, add the sugar and pomegranate molasses and let everything simmer for at least 20 minutes.
