(Persia Digest) – Sardashi is a well-known home cooked meal from Hamedan in western Iran with many health benefits.

Today, the dish is cooked in an oven. But in the old days when ovens were not available, the dish was taken to a “sangak” flat bread bakery to be cooked in the baker’s oven (sangak is a popular flat whole bread in Iran cooked on a bed of pebbles in a large oven.) “Dash” in Azari means pebble, and so the dish has come to be known as sardahi.

Ingredients (serves 4)

700g Mutton

2 Medium onions

3 Raw potatoes

1 Bell pepper

3 Medium tomatoes

Sliced potatoes to cover the kebabs
