Gosh-e fil (Persian: گُوش فيل; "elephant's ear"[1]) is a fried pastry from Afghan cuisine[2] The dough is shaped like an elephant ear (goosh), and deep-fried in oil. Each piece is then topped with chopped pistachios and powdered sugar.

This sweet is mainly served with tea, especially during Ramadan and Nowruz. [3]

The dough is made by whisking eggs, milk and butter, then adding the mixture to the dry ingredients.[4]

Gosh-e fil and Doogh

The city of Isfahan is one of the prominent cities of Iran, known as the city of delicious sweets,[citation needed] in which Gosh-e fil is eaten with a combination of local doogh (a combination of water and sour yogurt). This combination has long been rooted in the food culture of the local people and continues to this day. [5] [6]
