Very popular with kids, arakas is a store cupboard favourite. We always keep a pack of frozen peas in our freezer. And most of the other ingredients can be found at any time in our home. If not, it’s just a short walk to the corner shop. This dish gets tastier the more you leave it to stand, popular wisdom in Greece has it. That’s because it belongs to a category of recipes called ladera.
We love arakas so much, that in fact there are never any leftovers to freeze!
