Dough Preparation:

  • Place the flour in a large bowl, add the salt and mix.
  • Pour the water a little at a time as much as it will take and knead into a stiff dough.
  • Cover the bowl with a kitchen towel and set aside for about 20 minutes.

Filling Preparation:

  • Place the grated Halloumi cheese into a bowl, add the eggs and mint and mix well.
  • The filling mixture should be a little stiff.
  • If it is too stiff add another egg or some more grated Halloumi or just use as much of the original 2 eggs as needed.
  • Shape the filling into a roll and cut into small pieces.
  • Cut the dough into two equal pieces and roll them into thin Filo sheets.
  • Place the filling mixture pieces on the first Filo sheet at 5 cm intervals.
  • Cover the first sheet with the second and press the two sheets firmly with your fingers around the filling.
  • Cut the ravioles with a round cutter (if one available) or with a small glass.
  • Place the made ravioles on a lightly floured pan and continue the above process until all the filling mixture is used.
  • In a casserole bring to boil some chicken broth and cook the ravioles for about 12-15 minutes.
