In answer to this question, it should be said that Akbar joojeh is the name of the food, the name of the cook and the restaurant.
The story of the creation of Akbar joojeh is as follows: a young man with a thin body named “Ali Akbar Kalbadinejad” with his wife set up a coffee house in a rented place in Galugah, which was next to the intercity road.
In order to earn income in this coffee house with minimal facilities, they were busy cooking breakfast and midway food, which included tea, local cheese, sheep’s butter, eggs, omelets and delicious breads known as Kombe.

We put the pieces of chicken meat in hot oil, and after the two sides of the chicken pieces are golden and the center of the chicken is cooked very well, we take it out of the pot. Then, we should fry the chicken meat in butter for about 5 minutes to make it more delicious.
Of course, to spend less time, we can add butter to the pot containing oil so that the chickens are fried in a mixture of butter and oil. Add some salt and black pepper after the butter has been added to the chicken meat.
