A sprinkle of dried mint ties together the aroma and flavor of the sweet quince combined with the sour notes of pomegranate molasses and tomato paste. For Sawsan, all these ingredients create a magnificent symphony of tastes. You can serve safarjaliyeh with kibbeh or add kibbeh directly to the pot. (Safarjaliyeh with chickpea-size bulgur balls and kibbeh is called Analı, Kızlı, which means “Mothers and Daughters” in southeastern Turkey.) Some cooks use chicken rather than lamb.
