Kolompeh is an Iranian pastry baked in Kerman.[1] Kolompeh looks like a pie with a mixture of minced dates with cardamom powder and other flavoring inside. Dates, wheat flour, walnuts and cooking oil are the main ingredients.[2] Pistachios or sesame powder are often used for decorating kolompeh.

History

Kolompeh traditionally was baked by Kirmani women manually, using local oils, dates from Kerman date palms, Persian walnuts, local cardamom, sesame, and local wheat flour. Industrially produced Kolompeh has now become one of the main Kerman souvenirs.[3] It is manufactured using a variety of formats with a variety of nuts.
