Finally, I'm back again!
Thanks for the emails and best wishes....As I mentioned, I got very sick, and then, my computer got sick....Now, we're both in good shape....and cooking again!!
We celebrated Nowruz last week....one of the festivities that I liked the most!!....I can feel and smell the Spring every morning!!....it is so good to enjoy the warm sun and to hear the birds again...
As usual, I made Ash Reshteh, a comfort soup with legumes, spinach, pasta and herbs. As sweets, I made Nan-e-berenjeni, Naan-e-gerdool, Baklava, and I made a new sweet Kolompe or Koloocheh that is a paatry filled witrh dates, walnuts and cardamom.....It was a pleasure to eat it!
For the dough
250 grams all purpose flour
100 grams of butter
100 grams of plain yogurt
1 tablespoon baking powder
For the filling
150 grams dates
80 grams of walnuts walnuts
2 cardamom pod freshly grinded
Mix all the dough ingredients until you have a firm dough. Adjust with water or flour in case you needed. Let it rest in the fridge for 1 hur.
Place the dates, walnuts and cardamom in a food processor. Mix it until you have grinded and mixed all the ingredients.
Roll it with a roll pin until you have 0.3-0.4 mm of thickness. With a cookie cutter or a glass, cut circles. Place a tablespoon of the date/walnut mix, and cover with another circle of dough. Seal the edges, and make a decoration if you wish to.
Bake it at 180C for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Let it cool and ENJOY!!
