Kookoo Morgh Instructions
Step one To make chicken kookoo, first pour the potatoes with two glasses of water in a small pot and put it on the heat to cook. Then pour the chicken with two glasses of water and some turmeric in another pot and put it on the heat to cook.
Step two After the chicken and potatoes are fully cooked, we set them aside to cool slightly, then grate the potatoes and chicken with the medium side of the grater and pour them into a suitable and wide bowl.
Step three In this step, we grate the garlic and onion and squeeze out their excess water with our hands, then add them to the bowl containing the chicken. Then chop the parsley or chives and add them along with some salt, turmeric and black pepper to the other ingredients.
Step four In this step, we mix the kookoo ingredients well until they are uniform. It is better to knead the ingredients with your hand for a few minutes to make them more cohesive. Finally, we add the eggs to the kookoo mixture and knead the ingredients again for a few minutes.
Step five If you have time, it is better to put the kookoo mixture in the refrigerator for at least an hour to let it rest and become stickier. If you don’t have time, you can go straight to frying it after preparing the kookoo mixture.
Step six We put a suitable pan containing liquid oil on the heat and after the oil is hot, we either put the kookoo mixture in one piece or shape it into small pieces like potato kookoo in our hand and throw it in the oil to fry.
