Doimaj is a traditional food of Qazvin. A very popular finger food, this dish has a strong resemblance to cheese bites. Doimaj contains shredded flatbread, cheese, cucumbers, walnuts, vegetables and sometimes yogurt.

These items are mixed together and rest at room temperature until thick. Traditionally in Qazvin, they divide little portions of Doimaj with an Estekan, a traditional Persian tea glass. These portions are then shaped into delicious Doimaj balls. This simple and easy-to-make dish is usually served alongside watermelons and is very refreshing especially during Iran’s hot summers.
