Qotab (Persian: قطاب‎ qottâb) is an almond-filled, deep-fried Persian cake. It's prepared with flour, almonds, powdered sugar, vegetable oil and cardamom. The city of Yazd is well known for its qotab. Ingredients: two medium eggs 100 grams yoghurt 100 grams cooking oil 150 grams flour one teaspoon baking powder 250 grams almonds 150 grams fine sugar one spoonful cardamom powder Directions: Separate egg-yolks and mix well with baking powder, cooking oil and yoghurt. Add flour gradually while stirring the mix. Pour the dough in a plastic bag and leave for 1-2 hours. Peel and ground almonds. Mix well with sugar and cardamom powder. Spread some flour on a tabletop. Make orange-sized balls from the dough. Flatten the ball on the tabletop to a thickness of 0.5 cm using a roller. Cut circles into the dough with a cup. Place some of the almond-sugar mix at the centre of each circle. Bring the edges of the circle together and press to close completely. Fry in pre-heated oil until colour changes. Drain the excess oil, and then roll in fine sugar. - See more at: http://www.iranchamber.com/recipes/dessert/qotaab.php#sthash.uq1OzXgI.dpuf
