Question about Iranian Abgoosht

Jim Leff | Dec 19, 201611:32 AM     2

So I've seen Abgoosht described as a hearty soup of lamb, chickpeas, white beans, onion, potatoes, and tomatoes, sweet/salty/sour/bitter all at the same time.

I've also seen it described as a lamb stew with chickpeas with liquid drained and the solids mashed up (like haleem), and served along with the broth plus a mound of mashed meat/vegetables. LIke a deconstructed stew.

I've also seen reference to Abgoosht Dizi, and I believe that just means it's made in a clay pot.

Can anyone help me understand? Is one view incorrect, or are there just multiple ways to prepare this?
