Trahanas pie

ελληνικα

In Greece this recipe is made in lots of different ways (and places) but I’m sharing with you the one coming from my home town Kozani. Sour trahanas based on wheat is  a delicious ingredient that people used to make in older days during summer time and eat in the winter creating many different recipes with it. My grandmother Kleopatra used to make big portions, boiling the wheat in sour milk, letting it dry in a dark and cool room for days and nights.. It’s funny how some memories can stay so clear in your mind: I still see her in this room and can smell the sour milk in the air!
