Loukoumades or Lokmades, as they are called in Cyprus, are Greek doughnuts. They take their name from the Arabic words “luqma(t) plural luqūm”, lokma and lokum or loukoumi, meaning morsel or mouthful. They are fried, shaped into small round ballls, served with honey, cinnamon and walnuts or plain in Cyprus dipped in sugar syrup.
Akoumia Symiaka (means doughnuts or donuts from Symi island). Symi is a small island of the Dodekanese to the north of Rhodes. These akoumia are not widely known even by Greeks because they are Symi’s local traditional doughnut recipe and are made only on the island of Symi.
