Recipe: Super easy Azerbaijani Frittata - Kuku

In summertime, I try and do some vegetarian days during the week. I choose vegetables and cold soups over meats and heavy stews. There are particularly few vegetarian meals that I absolutely love. Have you heard of frittata? I am sure that many of you had. But did you know there is Middle Eastern version as well? I come from Azerbaijan and we have kuku, which is basically big fluffy frittata with herbs. It is perfect for these warm spring and hot summer days when you want to feel light but also have something delicious and quick to make.

You need:

10 eggs
50 g fresh cilantro
50 g spring onions
50 g parsley
50 g dill
50 g spinach
25 g fresh mint
3 full tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
salt, pepper
sesame oil

Step by step:

First of all, chop up fresh cilantro, parsley, dill, spring onions, mint and spinach. Set aside. Beat the eggs into a large bowl and whisk well. Season with salt and pepper. Pour the egg mixture over herbs. Add 3 tablespoons of all purpose flour and a teaspoon of baking powder. Next, you will need a non stick frying pan. Melt about 2 tablespoons of butter and oil. Pour the mixture in, cover with a pot-lid and let it fry for about 8 minutes. Then turn your kuku over using a large plate and place it back into your pan, so both sides are brown. Cook for another 10 minutes.

It is absolutely delicious either hot right from the pan or even cold. Serve with balkan cheese, goat cheese or yogurt and garlic dip.
