    Wow, this Kolompeh recipe looks delightful! I’ve always been a fan of Persian food. The combination of dates, cardamom, and walnuts sounds so appealing. Can I replace the solid oil with a different kind of fat, say coconut oil?

      My dear Sofia,
      I’m so glad you chose our site for a great recipe, and I hope you’ll share the other experiences of yours with us.
      In order to have an excellent and good texture, solid oil should preferably be used, and if it is not available, butter, but coconut oil and other vegetable and liquid oils do not give us what we want from an authentic Iranian sweet in this recipe.
