persian anyone?

My best friend from Los Angeles is married to a Persian man and for wither my birthday or Christmas she sent me a Persian cookbook. I have made several recipes from it and have throughly enjoyed the flavors and characteristics known to Persian cooking. Last week, I made this dish (the Persian name escapes me at the moment) - an eggplant, tomato and lamb casserole topped with onions and a dash of paprika. The meat is seasoned with nutmeg and cinnamon and when all is said and done, topped with a little yogurt and some rice, this meal is to die for. Hearty, even for a summery meal.
