Tiganites Recipe

Tiganites are Greek mini pancakes that are ideal for brunch or as an afternoon snack! With just a few simple ingredients you can whip these together and serve them drizzled with honey, walnuts, sugar or marmalade. If you prefer a savoury version we recommend crumbling some Feta with oregano on top!


-2.5 x cups all purpose flour

-1/2 x lemon (juiced)

– 2 x cups water

-1 x egg

-1/2 x teaspoon salt

-olive oil for frying


-Pour flour, lemon juice, egg, water and salt into a large bowl and whisk together all ingredients until well combined and batter is smooth.

-Cover with cling wrap and allow to set for 15 minutes or until bubbles form.

-Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and pour enough oil to cover base of pan.

-Using a tablespoon, spoon 1-2 tablespoons of the batter into hot oil. Allow space between each piece and fry in batches about five at a time. 

-Place on paper towel to allow oil to absorb and repeat until you have used all batter. 

-Serve warm with topping of your choice.
