Kolompe....Persian Pastry to Celebrate Nowruz!


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 of the festivities that I liked the most!!....I can feel and smell the Spring every morning!! 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-berenjeniNaan-e-gerdoolBaklava, 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 egg

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!!
