Mahnaz jon, thank you so much for your support.

Thank you for that lesson, I really learned alot from it. I have made it twice and I know now what I was doing different (wrong). I was cooking the chicken with the sauce all at once. I never got the walnut oil to come out because I was not cooking it long enough to prevent the chicken from over cooking. That walnut oil was missing and therefore my Fesenjoon was not as rich tasting as it should have been. The lettuce tahdig was something new to me and Reza.
I asked for this so that I can prepare for our anniversary coming up, since it is a very special dish. Oh K Shar, I cannot express in words how much I am learning from you.
A million thanks and blessings to you :-) Debra

KShar January 29, 2011 at 1:31 am

I am so glad that you are finding my videos helpful. Happy Anniversary to you both and please give my regards to Reza. keep it cooking.

Before I make Fesanjan I have to get my tahdiq down. I’m getting a pot for it tomorrow.
Thanks for the show. I love it.

Hi KShar,
I must say that I have learned alot from your videos. I have also noticed that you would use saffron in every food you cook, but I think Fesenjoon Stew doesn’t need saffron because you’ll kill the natural colour and taste of walnut and it won’t taste how a traditional Fesenjoon should do. Thanks again for your videos.

KShar October 11, 2011 at 9:50 pm

Thank you for your comment, I use zaffron in most of my cooking , some times for color but mostly for taste. But what I am trying to show is for every one to create what they like , we all change in every way, and the same goes for our foods. I appreciate every one’s effort to give me their input and I take every comment with the love that was intended. merci for attention.

Monica October 18, 2011 at 5:07 pm

loved the presentation KShar! beautiful, just beautiful! my uncle and aunt make fessenjan as well and it’s very tasty such as yours. But, they shred the chiken seems like it. What’s your take on that?

KShar October 20, 2011 at 6:53 pm

Thank you Monica, some people do that, I dont because shreding the kichen make me think i am eating halim, but be creative and do your own thing. that is what i encourage every one to do. keep it cooking

Monica April 2, 2012 at 10:07 pm

Hi KShar! me again! well, finally I’m going to make the fessenjoun and noticed that you didn’t say how much plums did you grate? Could you please give the amount? tx KShar!

karen Sarid March 15, 2012 at 7:37 pm

Hi Kshar,
Thank you so much for showing us how to make this amazing dish. I am not sure I understood what the saffron water was or how to make it. I will buy your DVD for sure!!!
Best, Karen

KShar March 16, 2012 at 2:17 am

powder saffron mixed with hot water

Lilit June 18, 2012 at 9:10 pm

Hi Chef K Shar!! This is so exciting! Can’t wait to make this!! Can you please tell us what you add at the end? I couldn’t make out if you said dried plum or dried prune? And how do you grind this before adding it? Thank you so very much!

KShar June 19, 2012 at 1:34 am

I sliced them or cut them in to small pieces.

Lilit June 19, 2012 at 2:22 am
