Pitarakia

Pitarakia is a specialty of the island of Milos and Crete.  Those of Milos are similar to small cheese pitas and either accompany the main dish or, often accompanied by ouzo, constitutes a hearty meze. Pitarakia begin with sheets of handmade pastry, which are stuffed with “manoura” the local dry and spicy cheese of Milos, and onion and baked in the oven.

Those of Crete use some raki, a bit of lemon zest and yogurt to prepare the dough, mizithra as stuffing and then they are fried.
