What You Will Need For This Recipe

  • Rose Water: Rosewater has a unique aroma and is widely used in Middle Eastern and Persian cuisine, especially in pastries and sweet treats such as Nan Berenji, baklava, and Nan Panjereh.
  • Starch: Starch is preferred for baked goods because no chemicals are used in its production. The pure and powdered version of starch is white, odorless, tasteless, and insoluble in cold water, and is used to create thickness in desserts, custards, porridges, and sauces.
  • Rice Flour: Rice flour is one of the most used flours in Persian cuisine. This flour can be used to thicken soups and stews, as well as a substitute for wheat flour in cakes and biscuits. Since white flour is gluten-free, it is widely used in confectionery and gluten-free diets.
  • Flour: Use all-purpose flour for these cookies.
  • Eggs: Eggs add structure, color, and flavor to the cookies.
  • Powdered sugar: After frying the cookies in oil, let them cool a little and sprinkle powdered sugar on them.

  • Add the eggs one by one to the mixture and mix with a whisk until the batter is smooth.
  • Sieve rice flour and white flour and add to the batter. Mix until smooth
  • Heat oil in a deep and heavy saucepan.
  • Before dipping the iron into the cookie batter, first put it in the hot oil to warm it up a little.
  • Drain excess oil from the iron and dip it into the batter.
  • The batter should not rise above the edges of the iron, otherwise, the rosette will not come out from the iron.
  • Fry the cookies in oil for a few minutes until golden.
  • Gently remove the rosette cookie from the iron with a fork or a knife and place it on a paper towel.

Tips & Tricks

  • Nan Panjereh has specific iron molds. The Nan Panjereh mold has various designs and shapes. This rosette has a wooden handle that is screwed to the iron.
  • One of the main problems with making rosette cookies is that the batter sticks to the iron. To solve this problem, you must first make sure that the iron is clean because the dried batter can cause cookies to stick to the mold.
  • When frying the cookies, the iron should be hot enough (not too hot). Then dip your iron into the batter. Take care not to let your batter come over the top of the iron, otherwise, the cookie will not come off.
