Kookoo is the name of a category of Iranian foods which is like pancake and is made of mixture of eggs with finely chopped ingredients; mainly potatoes or vegetables.
The two very famous kookoos are kookoo sabzi (vegetable kookoo) and kookoo sib zamini (potato kookoo). We also have kookoo esfenaj (sinach kookoo) and I made it for the first time today.
I thought to take some pictures and share the very easy recipe with you step by step:
What you need:

Ready! I eat it with yoghurt it makes it more yummy.
Bon appetite, nooshe jan:
