kookoo sibzamini recipe


  • To puff kookoo and to have a crispy and puffy kookoo sibzamini you must mix the eggs well in a separate bowl until they are completely uniform and smooth. After mixing the eggs well, add them to the kookoo mixture. 
  • Be sure to use a plate on the bottom of the air fryer because the kuku liquid is sticky and may stick to the paper and spoil the kuku.
  • The secret of kuku sibzamini is the use of saffron. You can add a small amount of brewed saffron to the ingredients to make the color of it beautiful. 
  • If the surface of the kuku cracks or loosens while frying, there are two reasons: either the potato and onion water was too much, or the egg was not enough.
  • The egg should be of the right size. If there is too much, it will smell like a wound, and if there is too little, it will cause the kuku to crack or loosen.
  • If you make kuku with raw potatoes, be sure to fry it on low heat and give it time to cook well.
  • If you use vegetables in the kuku, be sure to chop the vegetables finely so that they don’t get watery, and be sure to add the vegetables cold to the ingredients.
