My Little Persian Watermelon Slushie’s (and some very interesting melon facts!)

Did you know that Iran is one of the largest watermelon producers worldwide? Neither did I! And also, Iranian watermelon is considered to be one of the best varieties in the world! In the world! Can you believe it!ย And I always thought they came from the Caribbean!ย 

My Little Persian Koteletes (potato saffron and mince meat patties)

Although the name suggests ‘lamb cutlets’ these couldn’t actually be further from them. They are little potato and saffron meat patties that look like little hamburgers but taste similar to Kabab. They can be served with rice and salad or with hot fresh lavash. I enjoy them both ways and can eat them by the dozen!

My Little Persian Kitchens Nan ‘e’ Keshmeshi (raisin cookies)

Another request from a follower are these gorgeous delicate little raisin cookies. They are lovely with a strong cup of Persian Chai and keep well in the fridge for a few weeks. Be careful though they are so easy to eat you could easily consume an entire plateful before you know it!

My Little Persian Kitchen’s Window Cookies – Nan e Panjerehi

My grandmother was a wonderful women. She had a huge heart and amazing spirit. She loved to cook and her cooking was incredible! To this day when my dad cooks he references her cooking and sometimes he will taste something that catches him off guard and you can see it brings back memories of his mum, my mamanie, and he smiles.
