Ode to my friends. With 2 ingredients loukoumades (greek donuts).
Life without friends would be empty. Bland. Meaningless.
Even when they are not around for a reason, you know that they will be if you need them.
Even when they are not physically present, they communicate with you through a telephone line, an e-mail, a message or a chat room.
It doesn’t matter.
They are close enough when you need to just talk to someone, say meaningless things, common jokes, common codes, scream, yell, laugh, cry, moan, do nothing.
Marietta, Argyro, Christofili, Katerina, Panagiotis, Andreas, Irene.
In random order.
But not randomly chosen.
These loukoumades, an old two ingredient recipe of Christofili, are dedicated to you.
They are even dissimilar, like you.
I know you weren’t there when I made them this time.
But I promise to do so soon.
For 1 big soup plate. For two people or one greedy!
- 1 cup self rising flour
- 1 cup fresh milk
- Olive oil for frying
- Honey and cinnamon for sparkling
- In bowl, pour the flour and milk and mix well with a whisk until you get a smooth and quite thick porridge. Add some more flour or milk if needed to get this.
- Heat olive oil into a pan on medium fire and then pour half of a tablespoon of porridge into the hot oil. Pour some more, but not too many so as not the oil temperature is lowered and the loukoumades stick together. If you a have a donut gadget shaper, you may use it as well.
- Immediately turn them from the other side –they are fried too quickly! Take them into a big bowl and do the same with the rest of the porridge.
- When you finish, sprinkle cinnamon and lots of honey, which is best to just warm it first in a small pot so as it thinners and becomes like a syrup!
Eat them hot!!
