It is traditionally made with poultry (duck or chicken), but can also be made using balls of ground meat or chunks of lambs. but fish or no meat at all are very unusual. Depending on the cooking recipe, it can have sweet or sour taste. Fesenjān is served with Iranian white or yellow rice (polo or chelo).
