Kuku Sabzi Recipe

Kuku sabzi does not have a single recipe like many recipes, everybody cooks it differently.

Its basic features are having plenty of green spices, the amount of eggs is less than herbs and the egg is used only as a binder, the taste is supported with powder spices.

Walnut and dried fruit can be added just like I do, or just to decorate. The baking powder is again optional. The greenery and the spices are completely based on your taste. But keep it in mind that generally the fresh herbs such as fresh onion or garlic is used. Unfortunately I could not use onions and garlic because of stomach problems. I also could not dare to put very dense tastes together, so I used  purslane. In addition I used plenty of parsley, dill, fresh mint, fresh thyme in my herb mixture.
