Baghali Ghatogh – Stew of Beans and Dill

Baghali Ghatogh is one of the famous dishes of north Iran! It’s one of those vegetarian dishes that tastes really good and maybe particular for those who never taste it before. The combination of garlic, dill & turmeric gives it a unique taste and with kateh rice it feels like heaven!
