I love to make this dish when tomatoes are in season and full of flavor. I prefer it with sangak bread but locals eat it with plain rice. It’s interesting that in northern Iran, because of the Italian/Russian influence, they call tomatoes pomador whereas in southern Iran, because of the Portuguese influence, they call it tamata.
