Some people call this dish a lazy cook’s pie. It is really more a tart than a pie, a traditional dish in many parts of Greece that can be prepared quickly, when there is no time to make phyllo. The recipe was given to me by my friend
Mamaliga can be eaten warm or cold. It can even be frozen and reheated for about 30 minutes before serving.
In a large bowl, mix the zucchini, onions, flour, trahana, mint, milk, cheeses, and eggs. Add the salt and chili pepper to taste, keeping in mind that the cheeses can be very salty. Pour half of the oil into a deep earthenware baking dish 10 to 12 inches in diameter and brush oil on all its sides. Pour the zucchini mixture into the dish and top with the rest of the oil.
