This is from "Herbs and Spices the Cook's Reference" by Jill Norman. This substantial omelette, something like a Spanish tortilla, is called a kookoo in Iran and eggah in the Arab countries. A tablespoon of barberries can be added to the filling. The omelette can be baked or cooked on top of the stove.
