This is a simple Kookoo Sabzi recipe…there are a few different ingredients that can be added to vary the Kookoo Sabzi. Kookoo is considered a souffle and Kookoo Sabzi is a vegetable souffle with various herbs mixed in with eggs (and a few other things) and then cooked.
2 packages (baste) Parsley
2 packages Cilantro
1/2 package spinach
2 packages green onions –only use the ends where it is green in place of Tareh
1 - 2 tablespoons dill (dry or fresh)
Garlic — finely diced or grated
Salt/pepper — dont add too much salt because it can become bitter
a pinch of Baking powder
After cleaning and rinsing the sabzi (herbs) you want to chop them up…can use a food processor to simplify the task. Note: I typically let the herbs soak in water for at least 30 minutes before rinsing them to make sure all the dirt is removed. In a bowl add the chopped herbs, garlic, turmeric, a little salt, pepper, baking powder, and then the eggs. Mix all ingredients well.
In a frying pan (that has a lid) pour in a good amount of oil. Put on the stove on a medium- high heat and once the oil is heated add the mixed ingredients and flatten out in the pan. After a few minutes bring the temperature to medium and place the lid on the frying pan. After about 15 minutes you want to cut up the Kookoo Sabzi into 4 or more pieces and then flip it over for the other side to fry as well. You should notice a darker green color to the side that is fried…if needed you can allow it to fry a bit longer before flipping it over. When you flip it over you will cover the frying pan with the lid again and allow it to cook another 15 - 20 minutes.
You can serve the Kookoo Sabzi with bread or with Sabzi Polo. In fact many times I have eaten Sabzi Polo ba Mahi and Kookoo Sabzi. Very tasty
