KUKU SABZI کوکو سبزی
Kuku Sabzi (Kookoo), Persian Herb Frittata. Kuku is the common name for a group of popular Persian food that are usually vegetarian, though a few kuku’s have meat in the recipe. Sabzi means herbs in Farsi, namely chives (tareh), cilantro (geshneez) and dill (shevid) are used in this kuku. Besides herbs, barberries (zereshk) and walnuts (gerdoo) are also used in this delicious Persian favorite. To describe kuku to someone who has never tried it, I would say it is similar to frittata. Well maybe that and quiche; but the latter usually has a crust and heavy cream. So I will stick with frittata. But frittata is basically an open-faced omelette that is made by frying vegetables with or without meat in the skillet and then adding beaten eggs and cooking it. On the other hand, the ingredients for kuku are usually prepared separately and then mixed with beaten eggs in a bowl and added to the skillet at the same time.
