Golap گلاپ means rose. Making these pretty colourful roses is lots of fun and they are very tasty. They look gorgeous outside and inside with lovely sweet taste of spices such as cardamom or cinnamon.

Divide the dough into 4 balls. If you wish to have multi coloured sweets roses, add pinch of food colouring to the dough and set aside.

Using a rolling pan, roll each ball into a thin flat dough. Use a glass and cut flattened dough and cut into small circles. Roll small piece of dough and make tiny drop shape dough.( see the photos).

For making a rose, you need 3 of theses small circles. Place 3 small circles on top of each other make a hollow with your finger in the centre of dough. from the centre of the dough make 3 cuts ( as you see in the photo).

Put the small drop in the centre and start to fold each petal round the drop. Keep doing until finish all petals.

Cut the green colour dough into leaf shapes. Add one cup sugar and cardamom with 1 ½ cups water to a pot and dissolve the sugar. Let it boil for 5 minutes until it become a little thick.

Heat the oil on a medium heat and fry rose shaped dough until it fried and cooked inside. Take out fried Golap pitha from the oil and soak in warm syrup for a minute and transfer it to a plate.

Hello everyone, my name is Rozina. I am Iranian with Azerbaijani roots. I was raised in Iran but I am living in Scotland. I am passionate about cooking and preparing meals for my family and friends. I tell them the story behind the meal, the pronunciation of their Iranian name and the spices that used in Persian cuisine. I am a photographer, a cooking teacher, and very interested to introduce Persian and Azerbaijani meals, desserts and beverages to people from different cultures, as I love to try food from all over the world. Iranian cuisine is a combination of rice with meat ( chicken, beef, lamb, fish, turkey), nuts, fruits, dried and fresh herbs and vegetables. Iranian food is a celebration of flavor, colour and spices such as: saffron, cinnamon, cardamom, turmeric, dried rose petals, dried limes, cumin, .... I share my recipes in Farsi/English along with step by step photos of preparation. I take all my own pictures. I have learned my traditional Persian and Azerbaijani recipes from my lovely mother, and she has learned from her mother. Over the years, I have experimented and learned more recipes. Some of my recipes are a fusion Western and Middle Eastern cuisine. Some are forgotten from Persian cooking tables and I try with posting and sharing those ones, to preserve them. All my recipes and pictures are property of rozinaspersiankitchen. I would be pleased if you would mention my site if you wish to use any of them. So, if you are interested to know about Persian /Azerbaijani food taste, you can try my website. I will be glad to hear your ideas about my recipes. :) Thank you for visiting my website.
