Sauté the rooster and the onion into a deep frying pan.

When sautéed, add red wine.

The original old recipe did not have wine.

Wait for some time (if wine has been used) and add the tomato paste, the pepper and the bay leaves.

Let the rooster cook and at the end, add salt if needed.


1 rooster cut into small pieces

1 cup olive oil

1 2 chopped onions

2 tablespoons tomato paste from Milos, dissolved in slightly warm water

2 bay leaves



1 cup red wine (optional)
