  • water enough for a smooth dough
  • 1 small cup olive oil

  • Leave to rest for 30 minutes.
  • Then take a piece of dough, roll out into thin pastry and cut into strips with a knife.
  • Cut off balls of dough, roll out into thin sheets, cut them into thin strips and form into bow shapes.
  • In a large frying pan, heat the oil until quite hot and fry the bows until golden.


  • Boil 1 kg honey with some water, sugar, cloves and cinnamon for 15 minutes.
  • Add some lemon juice at the end.
  • Place the fried bows on a piece of kitchen paper laid on a large platter to drain.
  • While still warm, drench with the honey and sprinkle with ½ kg of sesame seeds that have previously roasted.
