Roast the meat

The next step is to roast the meat. It is better that the meat is not too fatty so that the stew does not have fat. Roast the meats with the onions until slightly cooked. Let the mixture rest on a low flame to prevent the meat from burning. It is better to do this in a pot to pour one to two glasses of water in the next step, into the meat for cooking and get juicy. This causes the stew to settle and have a suitable density bit by bit with low water and steam. It is necessary to add saffron at this stage.

Let the stew thicken. This time will be approximately two hours. In the last half hour, you can put the pumpkins in the stew water because if you do this very soon, it will crush the pumpkin pieces.
