Pastis Pastry

  • 1 kg/ lb superfine plain flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 4 eggs</


Start by making the pastis several hours or the day before you cook the dish. The given quantities will make enough pastry for 8 people, but you need a large amount of dough to pull it out to the required thinness. Freeze the surplus dough to use in another recipe. Making this pastry is hard work; to save time and effort, you can use bought filo.

Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl
