Step 1

For the Turkey: We put the water and Walnut inmulti and whip till it becomes a uniform cream.

Heat the oil in a wide skillet and pour onions. Cook stirring for 2-3 minutes, up to oil. Take them out with a slotted spoon to a plate.

Step 3

In the same pan, add the Turkey pieces to get a light color and above add onions and then the walnut paste. Season and add the Pomegranate juice.
