I could have not possibly written about Iranian winters spent under a Korsi and not mentioned one of the most beloved winter dishes Ab-goosht, which literally translated means meat water. I have very fond memories of sitting under the Korsi and eating Ab-goosht while outside it snowed. There are a few different ways in which this dish is spelled: Ab-goosht, Abgoosht, or Abgousht. Some also refer to this dish as Dizi after the traditional dish in which it is made. There are two components to this dish one being a soup or broth and the other a paste made with the ingredients that the meat is cooked with. This is a delicious meal even though appearance wise it might not be too pleasing to the eye. But once you have taken a sip of the soup and a bite of the pureed meat, you will see why every Iranian loves ab-goosht.
