For the avgokalàmara
5 eggs
5 tablespoons oil
5 tablespoons sugar
5 tablespoons tsikoudià for dredging
1 glass milk
1 packet baking powder

For the syrup
2 glasses sugar
1 glass water
cinnamon, walnuts and sesame


Beat the olive oil with the sugar, the tsikoudia, the eggs, the milk and the baking powder. Slowly add the flour and knead well. Roll out a 1/2cm thick pastry sheet, cut it into squares of 10x10cm, twist them up in the shape of a cone, or tie them into knots. You can create all kinds of shapes and deep-fry them in hot oil. Then, place them on a paper towel. Prepare the syrup and immerse the avgokalamara in the boiling syrup. Allow each one to soak for a while and then place them on a platter. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, cinnamon, coarsely ground walnuts and some sugar.
