(Persia Digest) - Vavishka is one of the local dishes of Guilan Province in northern Iran and is cooked in a variety of ways. Many locals cook this meal with meat and eggs, others use chicken rather than meat, and many even use potatoes instead of eggs.
This meal is served as a stew with rice. According to hearsay, Vavishka is a Russian word; after they invaded Iran during World War II, they chose this name for this meal.
1 Garlic bulb
1 Medium-sized Onion
500g Minced meat
2 tbsp Tomato paste
3 Medium-sized Tomatoes
½ Cup Water
1 tbsp Oil
1 tsp Turmeric
½ tsp salt
½ tsp Ground pepper
Heat the oil in a pan. Then add the garlic and sauté. Add the onion while sautéing the garlic, and fry it next to the garlic.
Add the minced meat, salt, pepper and turmeric, and sauté well until the meat is browned. Add the tomato paste and fry it with the meat.
Once the tomato paste has added color to the ingredients, slice the tomatoes and add them to the meat sauce and stir. Add some water to the fried mixture and cover the pan; bring to the boil and allow to simmer until all the ingredients are cooked.
After 30 to 40 minutes, break the eggs into the stew and wait for them to harden without stirring. Turn off the heat and serve the stew in a dish of your choice.
