Balig levengi
Levengi (ləvəngi) is a stuffing made from ground walnuts and dried fruit, typical of the southern Lenkoran area.
Levengi is used as a stuffing for both poultry and fish. The fish most commonly stuffed with levengi is kutum, a 2-4 kg white fish unique to the Caspian. If you cannot get hold of kutum, use another type of round fish, served whole, such as sea bass, sea bream, carp, grey mullet, red mullet, pike or snapper.
