Sift flour. Add the yeast and sugar, then stir with a spoon or balloon whip.


Add water and salt. Stir well until it is homogeneous. Cover with the film and let stand about 30 minutes.


Heat olive oil in a frying pan. Once hot, pour a few spoons into the pan, leaving a little space between each so that the tiganites do not stick together. Return as soon as one side is cooked.


Once cooked on both sides, remove the tiganites from the pan and put them on paper towels to remove excess oil.


Serve the tiganites with honey and cinnamon, or any other accompaniment according to your preferences!

You can now enjoy this greek version of the pancakes. Enjoy your dessert !
