Celery and Herb Stew

Many traditional Persian stews are difficult to make, but I find this one great for beginners. Believe me when I say it does not taste beginner at all. The celery gets fried with mint and parsley, making it very fragrant and tender. You can use any kind of meat you like for this stew. I used beef. You could also make it vegetarian. Serve with a bed of basmati rice.

I used dried Persian limes for this recipe. There is a link below to some online. You can replace the dried limes in this recipe with juice from a couple fresh limes to make it easier. I always add fresh lime juice in the end, as well.
