Kale Pache or Kaleh Pacheh is an Iranian traditional dish, made with a sheep’s entire head and it’s hooves. In Iran it is usually consumed as a breakfast soup.

It includes lamb’s head (including brain), tongues, and hooves, and is seasoned with lemon and cinnamon.

To prepare Kaleh Pacheh, the heads and feet of sheep are collected, mashed, cooked and treated as per the recipe.

Kaleh pacheh is almost always only served from three in the morning until sometime after dawn, and specialty restaurants (serving only kaleh pacheh) are only open during those hours.

“Kalepache” is a Persian word which translates to “heads and hooves”.
