Steps

1
Done

Preparation of the Koukou Sibzamini

Cook the potatoes in water and grate or mash them in a salad bowl.
Note: it is better to wait for the potatoes to cool before grating or mashing them. Your koukou will hold up better when cooked.

2
Done

Fry the onions in a separate pan and finely chop the garlic.

3
Done

Add the 2 eggs, cooked onions, minced garlic, yeast, turmeric, saffron (optional), salt and pepper to the grated or mashed potatoes. You can also add herbs like parsley or basil.
Mix everything well.

4
Done

Heat some sunflower oil in a pan. Form small round croquettes with your hands, lower the heat and add the koukou to the pan.
For a good cooking, make sure that the Koukou is 3cm thick at most.

5
Done

Fry the Koukou Sibzamini on one side then turn it over using a plate or a flat lid. Leave to cook over low heat for a few minutes.

6
Done

Take your koukou out of the pan and wring it out using a paper towel to remove the fat.

7
Done

Enjoy your Koukou Sibzamini hot, warm or cold with mast-o-khiar (Iranian tzatziki) and season it to your liking.
