Rovani

A local sweet made of rise, honey and olive oil baked all together in a deep pan.

 

What we need:

1/2 kilo short grain rice

  • 1/2 kilo sugar
  • 1/2 kilo honey
  • 8 glasses of water
  • 1 cup oil
  • Whole blanched almonds or cloves
  • Syrup
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2-3 cloves of cinnamon sticks


Grind rice in a food processor
Combine water, oil, sugar and honey and bring to the boil.
Gradually add rice.
Stir continuously.
Continue to stir for approximately one hour until rice is cooked.
Pour mixture into a greased baking dish and allow to cool.
When cool, cut into diamond shapes for serving.
Place half an almond or a clove in the centre of each diamond.
Bake in a slow to moderate oven for approximately 21/2 hours. When rovani is removed from the oven, pour cooled syrup over hot rovani.

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan.

Allow to cool before pouring onto the hot rovani.

To cut diamond shapes, make parallel cuts 5cm/2in apart and cross cut diagonally at 5cm/2in apart.
