This is a fast and easy Iranian dish great for supper – at the table, or “for the road”. All my non-Iranian friends love this “Persian pancake”, as they call it. Normally it is made mainly with potatoes, and eggs, but I do add one or two other ingredients.
For six relatively hungry people, you would need the following:
- 1 kg regular potatoes;
- 4 eggs;
- 1 small onion;
- 1/2 cup milk;
- 1/2 cup chopped parsley and chives;
- pinch of turmeric; salt, powdered black pepper (desired amount),
- and a lot of cooking oil.
NOTE: Some use baking powder to make koo koo tender. I think it adds an unpleasant taste and elastic feel to it though! Milk and onion (or even onion alone) does a wonderful job making it tender and crunchy. Herbs, however, could easily be skipped without damaging the result. It is just a matter of taste and innovation! Read the rest of this entry »
