1. Walnut will burn quickly on direct heat and will taste bitter, so try to use a very light flame.
2. You have to be careful about the heat after adding meatballs too because it can burn walnuts. You can stir it 1-2 times to be assured it's not happening.
3. No need for salt, pomegranate paste have enough salt.
4. You can use chopped chicken breasts instead of meatballs.
