Persian Mille Feuille Recipe – A cross between Baklava and Mille Feuille

A few years ago my husband made me a beautiful Persian Love Cake for my birthday. It was a delicate cardamom chiffon sponge with a delicious fresh cream filling flavoured with rose water with candied rose petals and pistachios. It was incredible.  I am unashamed to say that I ate pretty much the entire cake, bar one slice that he had, and I loved every mouthful.

Lamb & Apple Khoresht Recipe – A Big Bowl of Persian Stew

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.

My little Persian Pancakes

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.
