Kuku (Persian:کوکو سبزی), also spelled as kookoo sabzi, is an egg-based and often vegetarian Iranian dish made of whipped eggs folded in various ingredients. It is similar to the Italian frittata, the French quiche, the Arabian eggah, or an open-faced omelette, but it typically has less egg than a frittata, and it cooks for a shorter amount of time, over a low heat, before turned over or grilled briefly to set the top layer.
From the late 1700s until about 1900, virtually all recipes for "cutlets" (kotlet) in English-language cookbooks referenced veal cutlets. Then pork cutlets began to appear. More recently,[when?] in American and Canadian cuisine, cutlets have also been made using chicken, although this was also imported from Europe. The cutlet is usually coated with flour, egg and bread crumbs, then fried in a pan with some oil.
