How to cook Gheymeh Nesar
First, we cut the onion into small pieces and fry it with some liquid oil in a suitable pan until the onion becomes light; then, we add some turmeric to the onion and fry it until it becomes uniform with the turmeric.
Then, we chop the meat into mincemeat and add it to the pan containing the onion; Then, fry the meat well until its colour changes, then add the tomato paste and fry a little until the raw taste of the tomato paste is taken.
In the following, we add some black pepper, cardamom powder and cinnamon powder and fry a little until the spices are uniform with the other ingredients. Next, we add one and a half glasses of water, close the pan lid, and let the meat cook with gentle heat.
Next, we soak the rice, heat a pot of water until it boils, and then add some salt. Next, we pour the soaked rice into boiling water and rinse it when the grains around the rice grains are soft and the kernels and their centres are a little stuck.
After putting a suitable pot on low heat, then pour a little oil into the pot for the bottom of the pot as desired using bread or potato rings. Then, pour the drained rice into the bottom of the pot and let the rice brew by putting the lid on the pot. Let the barberry fried slightly with sugar while the rice is being prepared, then set it aside. Soak almond slices in rose water and fry in butter or oil, do the same for the pistachio slices.
be sure to boil the orange peel several times. If you want to use it until its bitterness is removed, then fry it with saffron and butter and set it aside. The right time for removing the pan from the heat is when the meat completely absorbs the water in the pan. Put the rice in a dish and pour the meat, pistachio slices, almond slices, orange peel slices, and roasted barberry on the rice according to your taste, and now you can serve Gheymeh Nesar.
