Ancient honey and sesame fritters

It is amazing how little this recipe has changed 1800 years after. The Roman Physician Galinos (129 - 99 ac) describes in his book this sweet with many details.

Ancient honey and sesame fritters


120 gr flour
225 ml water
2 spoons honey
Oil for frying
1 spoon (15 gr) baked sesame seeds


Mix the flour, the water and one spoon of honey and make a dough. Heat 2 spoons oil in a frying pan and pour ¼ of the mixture. When it thickens turn it upside down 2 -3 times to fry it in both sides. Prepare 3 more fritters following the given instructions. Serve them hot, pour over the rest of the honey and dredge sesame seeds over them.
