Albanian Leek Pie (Pras Lakror)


Serves: 4 people – 12 slices

Cooking time: 50 minutes



  • 3 Large Diced Leeks
  • 2 Tbsp Parsley
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper


For the batter:

  • 660ml Water
  • 1 Eggs
  • 300g Flour



Put a little olive oil in a pan and saute the leeks for 5 minutes until softened.

Add salt, pepper, and parsley, stirring well.

In a mixing bowl, add the flour, egg and 2 cups of water – mix to form a thin batter.

Use a large baking tray and add olive oil to cover a thin layer on the base, add 3/4 of the batter on top.

Sprinkle the leeks equally over the batter.

Add an extra cup of water to the batter, then sprinkle over the leeks creating a lattice effect.

Place the leek pie at the bottom of the oven for 30 minutes on 180 degrees, moving it up to the middle for the final 15 minutes.
