Khoresh Gheimeh

Gheimeh or Qeymeh (Persian: قیمه) is a Persian stew of which the main ingredients are cubed lamb, yellow split peas, onion and dried lime. This stew is combined with either thin French fries or eggplant and usually served with rice. The best kind of Gheimeh is cooked in Mashhad which is named Gheyme Mashhadi. I and my mom has cooked and decorated a dish of Gheymeh Mashhadi for you. Hope enjoy it!

Your festive table looks "fit for a king" (and queen).
This dish sounds like a winning combination of ingredients.

Dina, mom says we like to have you as the "Queen you said" at this food table. Do you accept Ms Queen? ;))

I know Iranian food is DELICIOUS, because I have Persian friends who sometimes cook for me:) Ghazaye irani KHEILI khube!

Your mom's food looks good and that tablecloth is absolutely gorgeous. Red and brown go really well together, and I like the roses there. Oh how I wish I could taste that bread. Nune irani dust daram!

It is always a pleasure to read your blog! I was in Mashad as a tourist in May 2009 for a short visit (Holy Shrine, Kwadjeh Khabi, Tus..) It was a wonderful trip!

I really admire you and your mom as the best Iranian matron.
I wish I was there and taste your delicious stew.

i LOVE this stew! Your stew reminds me of the one we had in the Mudheef.
First of all, I'd like to thank you for this blog; it's a great idea that helps people see Iran in a different light. I visited Mashhad for the first time this last November and I completely fell in love with it - especially the Imam Redha Shrine. It is complete tranquility and peace for me. I'm an architecture student, so for me it was more than just a feeling...the place is magnificent with so much detail mashallah! I absolutely adore Mashhad, and can't wait to go there again and perhaps visit Isfahan and other cities. I'll be checking your blog for updates :) Keep it up!
