Koukous are undoubtedly the most popular Iranian dishes. To eat as a starter or as an accompaniment.
Herbs are widely used in Iranian dishes. “Iran cuisine” has therefore decided to tell you about a flagship recipe of Iranian cuisine: Koukou, also spelled Kuku or Kookoo (کوکو) Koukou is traditionally eaten on March 21 during the festival of Nowruz, the New Year of the Persian calendar.
In Iranian gastronomy, “Koukou” means pancake and refers to any dish with fried vegetables and eggs as the basic ingredients. Koukou are very convenient to cook and don’t take much time to prepare. Indeed, the technique for making these koukou is quite similar to an omelet. All you need to do is bring a pan and a spatula and you’re good to go. There are two kinds of Koukou very popular and widespread in Iran: “Koukou Sabzi” or “Koukou Sibzamini”.
