Kaloirka is a traditional Cypriot recipe, which is a pasta dish filled with minced veal or beef, similar to meat ravioli, maybe a remnant from the Venetian rule on the island!! This was the first time I made ravioli with ground beef. I usually make them with a cheese filling but it was something I wanted to make for a long time now.
You can either make them using the same procedure to make the Cheese Ravioles but we usually shape them as in the picture.
Again kaloirka are cooked in chicken broth and with lots of halloumi on top.
The recipe is included in my cookbook Mint, Cinnamon & Blossom Water, Flavours of Cyprus, Kopiaste!
