Iranian Desserts & Pastries: Ghotaab Recipe


Ingredients: 4 Servings

• medium eggs, two

• yogurt, 100 grams

• cooking oil, 100 grams

• flour, 150 grams

• baking powder, one teaspoon

• almonds, 250 grams

• fine sugar, 150 grams

• cardamom powder, one spoonful


Separate egg-yolks and mix well with baking powder, cooking oil and yogurt. Add flour gradually while stirring the mix. Pour the dough in a plastic bag and leave for 1-2 hours.

Peel and ground almonds. Mix well with sugar and cardamom powder. Spread some flour on a table-top. Make orange-sized balls from the dough. Flatten the ball on the table-top to a thickness of 0.5 cm using a roller.

Cut circles into the dough with a cup. Place some of the almond-sugar mix at the center of each circle. Bring the edges of the circle together and press to close completely.

Fry in pre-heated oil until colour changes. Drain the excess oil, and then roll in fine sugar.
