Celery Khoresh

Celery is one of my favorite greens and they say they are really good for burning fat. This is recipe is a khoresh with celery and fresh/dried herbs, its tasty and refreshing and like other types of khoresh, its great for dinner parties as you can make it beforehand and it goes a long way. So here is the recipe for 2-3.
Onion: 1 medium
Celery : 4-5 sticks-diced (2-3 cm pieces)
Lamb: 5-6 pieces- diced
Dried herb (Dill, parsley): 2 Tsp
Dried lime/ lemon juice: 1-2 (to taste)
Water (boiled): 1 pint
Beef cube: 1
Turmeric: 1tsp
Salt and pepper: to taste
Vegetable oil : 1 Tsp

Fry the onion in the pan until nice and golden, add the celery and fry them as well. Add the lamb and a lot of pepper (black pepper),  turmeric , do not add the salt yet or the lamb will go chewy, also the beef cube which we will add towards the end is quite salty, so taste before adding any more salt. Add the dried lime and the herbs and introduce them to each other in the pan, add the boiled water to the mixture and let it be until the lamb is tender (around 1 hour or so). Then add the beef cube and maybe some lemon juice to taste. Serve it with nice fluffy rice with maybe a dollop of yogurt.
