Place the minced meat in a bowl and add the salt, pepper, turmeric, and chickpea flour. Knead until all the ingredients are well mixed. Make into small meatballs the size of a walnut and fry in oil. Put to one side. Garlic powder and other spices can be added to the meat.

Slice the onion and caramelize in the frying pan. Add the diced walnuts to the onions and sauté. Then add the pomegranate paste and salt and stir, allowing the juices to be absorbed. Add the washed, soaked, and drained raisins and stir.
