You have not had a Greek dessert until you have tried this milk-based sweet. Golden and melt in your mouth. Made with multiple layers of phyllo/filo and filled with a creamy custard topped with thickened sugar syrup and cinnamon. Semolina is also used which adds a grainy texture to the custard filling.
Pre-made phyllo/filo can be found in most supermarkets these days which simplifies this recipe however you can make your own. Ideally, this sweet is served once cooled down and It is difficult to stop at just 1 piece. Served with a coffee frape or a Greek coffee. Did you know “Gala” means milk in Greek?
