Resi

Traditional dishes do not get more customary than the goat or lamb dish of Resi, which is specially linked with village weddings and certain areas of the island, especially the Pafos (Paphos) region.

Preparing Resi for a wedding has its own ritual where friends and family of the wedding couple gather to wash and grind wheat. The lamb is cooked slowly on a low heat with the wheat added. Once cooked, the bones are removed and the mixture of wheat and lamb meat is stirred well to make it smooth and velvety.

The meat can also be substituted with chicken or pork.
