Advieh khoresht is a spice mixture used in Iran in stews. Adviehs - such as advieh berenj (for rice) and this advieh khoresht - are classic Persian spice mixtures.
The term khoresht in most parts of Iran refers to a stew, although in Sassanian, the language precursor of Persian, the word means sauce. In cookbooks from before the seventeenth century you search in vain for the term. In those days stews are called ghaliyeh, Arabic for stew. This name is still used on the Persian Gulf coast for stewed fish dishes, elsewhere the term khoresht is used.
Khoresht is served with steamed rice. The khoresht is served on rice just like a goulash or hash, or eaten with bread. A khoresht is bound by definition, but without the use of flour. One of the most famous khoreshts is khoresht-e beh, a lamb and quince stew. Many khoresht recipes use fruits such as unripe plums, unripe (sour) grapes or verjuice, pomegranate, citrus fruits, even rhubarb.
