Uniqop’s advice:

Serve your stew with a dish of Kateh for a more delightful taste.
Fava beans are better than lima beans since they have a more similar taste to the Persian Pach Baghala.
For a better appearance, you can fry the eggs separately and install them on your stew while serving.
For a better scent, you cand add 2 tablespoons brewed liquid saffron while adding other spices.
