Ingredients For Kuku:
3 Potatoes

Kuku Shirin Recipe

  • First of all, you need to mix mashed cooked potatoes, eggs, flour, saffron, and salt in a big bowl. The result is a soft, tasty yellow liquid but not a watery one.
  • In the second step and with the help of a spoon, you need to pour the liquid into a frying pan. Fry it to a golden color.
  • Then you need to make a sweet Sharbat pour on the golden Kuku. For this Sherbat, mix Sugar, Rosewater, cardamom, and saffron in another pot and stir the mix for a couple of minutes on the oven.
  • After pouring the Sherbat on Kuku and cut into diamond shaped pieces, use almond slices, pistachio slices or barberries to decoration.

Your Kuku Shirin is ready now & can be served with rice or flatbread. Don’t forget to enjoy it alongside fresh vegetables or Persian yogurt!
