Imagine being a 9 year old little girl telling your grandmother, who had flown over from Iran and was stood cooking in your aunts kitchen ‘you are doing that wrong!’…..
Having been together for just over a year, my then boyfriend and I travelled to Rome for my 30th birthday. It was such a cool experience and one that always makes me smile when I think about it. We had very little money and were just starting out in our relationship together. This was a lovely surprise birthday trip.
So in Ode to my honey rant above I have made this gorgeous Honey and Orange Blossom Syrup to douse my breakfast pancakes in. You’re welcome!
These little 6 ingredient granola bars are super easy to make and taste like they should be bad for you.
I learned to make shortbread at ‘Brownies’. I must have been around 8 years old and the first time I made them I was proud as punch. Not too dissimilar from now really!
The beauty of this dish specifically is that it is so versatile. For my vegetarian and vegan friends and followers you can omit the meat and switch the vegetables round to your liking. Just keep the core spicing and water content the same and you cant go far wrong.
Kuku is a type of omelet similar to an Italian Fritata and filled with fresh chopped herbs. traditionally is was cooked over hot coals but now a days an oven is just fine! Ordinarily Kuku is served as a side dish or starter with salad, yoghurt and bread. They are delicious hot or cold and great for picnics.
Happy Chinese New Year!
Chinese & Persian New Year have some similarities. Both are celebrated on a different day each year. Chinese New Year due to following the lunar calendar and Persian New Year marking the coming of Spring time.
We love pancakes here at My Little Persian Kitchen! But who doesn’t? They are such a nostalgic treat and so versatile too. Sweet or savoury, scotch, crepes or buttermilk, I like them all.
…..on the odd occasion that I do get to enjoy, savour the moment and really take in what I am doing, I want there to be cake involved!
This Persian Milk Chicken is absolutely delightful and so easy to make during the week when you are busy or like this evening when it’s been a busy week and you just want something yummy but low maintenance!
I was a really fussy eater growing up. I would refuse to eat meat & made my dad pick all the bits of meat out of any khoresht I was having. I wouldn’t go near fish and hated all manner of dairy.
Is it just me or does everything feel a little bit better with chocolate?
