Tiganites: Greek Medallion Pancakes / Fritters

Tiganites pronounced tee-ghah-NEE-tess. This recipe intrigued me and I hope to try it when I'm no longer on a diet :). These light, crispy medallion-sized treats are a delight served with honey, Greek grape syrup called petimezi (Zaar doesn't recognize this as an ingredient), syrup or preserves. They can be eaten as a sweet snack, with breakfast, or as a brunch dish. They are favorites during The Great Lent as they contain no eggs or dairy products. The recipe can be vegan depending on your choice of topping. Recipe from about.com
