Peloponnesian honey rolls: thin strips of dough, folded into rolls or spirals or other forms (their name comes from the word 'to fold'), then fried in hot oil until crispy and drizzled with a honey syrup and sprinkled with cinnamon and often ground walnuts. They are often served at festivities.

They also make them on Sífnos where they are bizarrely called αυγοκαλάμαρα (avgokalámara) or ‘egg squid’,
