Baghali ghatogh (Persian: باقالی قاتق)[1] is a northern Iranian dish made with fava beans), dill, and eggs. It's usually served with kateh (Persian rice dish) in northern provinces such as Gilan and Mazandaran, and can be considered a khoresh (Persian stew). It is spiced with turmeric, salt, garlic, and sometimes pepper.[2][3]
