What Is The Difference Between Kuku And F
The difference between Kuku and a frittata is the number of eggs that are included in the dishes. The main ingredients in Kuku are the herbs, whereas, in a frittata, the main ingredients are eggs. Similarly to frittatas, all of the ingredients are combined in one bowl, then cooked together in the oven; sometimes on the stove then transferred in the oven to bake.
How to Make Kuku Sabzi?
First, pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees (Baking powder not photographed).
Second, wash all the herbs. Once they’re washed and dried, chop the herbs very thinly and place them in a large bowl, then add all of the remaining ingredients.
Mix all the ingredients together and transfer the ingredients to a cast iron skillet, or oven-safe skillet. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center.
Allow cooling. Serve as an appetizer, breakfast, lunch or dinner.
