Greek sweet phyllo bites - Kourkoubinia


For the syrup

  • In a pot add the sugar, the water, the cinnamon, the lemon peels, the glucose, and transfer over high heat.
  • Let it come to a boil until the sugar melts.
  • Remove the pot from the heat and set the syrup aside to cool well.

For the phyllo bites

  • Place a frying pan with the seed oil over low heat.
  • Add the water and the flour into a mug and mix. Set it aside. You will use this mixture as glue to stick the phyllo sheets together.
  • Spread one phyllo sheet on your working surface and add a little of your glue to the edges of the phyllo. Drizzle with the oil and place another phyllo sheet on top. Drizzle with oil and fold them in half crosswise, leaving a 2 cm border on the one side where you will spread the glue. Wrap into a roll and make sure it sticks together well at the end.
  • Follow the same process for all the phyllo sheets. In total, you will have 7 rolls.
  • Cut into 1,5 cm small rolls and fry them in batches in the hot seed oil, for 4-5 minutes, until they are crispy.
  • Remove from the pan, transfer them to the cold syrup, and leave them in for at least 30 seconds.
  • Let them cool and serve.
