Cauliflower Kuku (Persian Omlette)

Kuku might sound like a silly name but it is a delicious omlette made in Iran. Before 1935 Iran was called Persia and Jewish people have lived in Persia for almost 2500 years!
Kuku are light and fluffy and often contain vegetables. Here I am using cauliflower in it. Persians introduced the Moors to spinach and cauliflower was introduced to Persian cuisine from neighboring Asia Minor (now part of Turkey).


2 Eggs

One small cup Grated Cauliflower.

Half Finely Chopped Onion.

3 Green chili

Finely chopped Coriander leaves

Grated Ginger

Pinch of Red chili powder

Grated cheesePicsArt_02-01-02.30.48


Pinch of Oregano herb

One tbsp milk

Salt to taste


Step 1

Put eggs and grated cauliflower in a bowl.


Step 2

Mix grated cheese, chopped onions, chopped green chili, Coriander leaves, Grated ginger, oregano herb, red chili powder and salt with the egg mixture.


Step 3

Whip the mixture nicely and add one tbsp milk to it.


Step 4

Heat a pan and spread the mixture over it on a low flame.


Don’t add oil for three to four minutes, let the mixture cook properly on the pan, until it gets little bit harden up.

Step 5

Add butter/ oil to the pan and cook for 5-6 minutes until the color of the omlette turns golden brown.

Flip and cook from both the sides.


Persian Omlette is ready to be served.



Apply some butter over it and serve with tomato kechup 🙂

  1. Hello, Damini! Thanks for Your visits to my page and Your Likes.

    Was attracted to this Your post by the word ‘Cauliflower.’ Just today I made a literal mash of it, by cooking the poor things for 90 seconds in a pressure cooker. …Shall have to try it at 45 secs, I guess.

    Any way, this is a nice recipe You have given us, though I write it without having tried it. Omlettes are great things, as I know from the days I used to eat them. But Vegetables like Cauliflower, Cheese, and Milk were never added in my day!

    Also, Oregano, wonder if it is available even in supermarkets in India.

    Post some Cauliflower recipes, with All Indian spices, please. And what time would You recommend for pressure cooking it? 🙂

    Shall be going into more of Your posts. You present Your DIY things with Great and Beautiful graphics. Very Appealing.

    Kudos, Love and Blessings. 🙂
