Recipe: Kookoo Sabzi (Iranian Herb Frittata)
Ingredients (about 4 – 6 servings):
1 tablespoon Ghee or clarified butter
5 – 6 Eggs
1 bunch Italian parsley
1 bunch coriander (cilantro) leaves
1/2 bunch dill
a good hand full spinach or amaranth leaves
1 stem leek
3 – 4 tablespoon dried cranberries
2 -3 tablespoons walnuts
freshly ground black pepper
a dash of Cayenne pepper
Finely mince the parsley, coriander, dill, spinach and leek. Chop dried cranberries and walnuts at a size You prefer. Heat ghee in a small and high pan. Crack the eggs in a bowl, season with salt, pepper and Cayenne pepper and beat them vigorously. The more air You´ll whip in the eggs, the more fluffy the Kookoo Sabzi will be. Gently fold in the herbs, cranberries and walnuts and pour the mixture in the hot pan. Reduce the heat to a low level and and let it cook until the surface becomes dry. Let the omlette slide to a plate and cover it with the pan, use a kitchen towel and be careful not to burn Your fingers.
Turn it over and let the other side fry for a while. Flip it over again and again until You´ll receive a satisfying color. Cut the Kookoo Sabzi in cake-like pieces and serve it topped with walnuts and cranberries. Plain natural yoghurt is a welcomed dipping sauce.
