Normally found at local pastizzeriji which are dotted around the islands, this local fav is a little harder to come by these days, with most outlets closed down to limit the spread of Covid-19. But if you’ve got a craving, we have some good news!

The guys over at local Insta page @thefoodgurus.mlt have not only made their own – and they look absolutely delicious – but have also shared the recipe they used. Yep, you can make these babies at home, and with so much time spent indoors these days, it’s certainly worth the challenge!

Made with the traditional filling of spinach, tuna and anchovy, the recipe is an easy one to follow, and comes with step-by-step pictures to guide you on how it’s done.
