Saute the onion with the pepper and turmerc in the butter or the oil until well browned. Remove onions and drain. If ground meant is used, make small balls and brown slightly in the oil remaining in the pan. If birds are used, brown them on all sides.
Sprinkle meat or birds with the flour and the chopped walnuts and saute for a few minutes longer. Add water, pomegranate juice and salt to taste. If you like a sourer dish add lemon juice. Cover and simmer over low heat for 30 minutes.Server with chelo (white rice).
