Flia,[1] also known as fli or flija, is a dish in Albanian cuisine and Kosovo Albanian cuisine.[2][3] It consists of multiple crepe-like layers brushed with cream and served with sour cream.

March 18 is recognized as "Flia Day" in which families invite their relatives for preparing and eating Flia.

Flija requires very simple ingredients: flour, water, butter, yogurt and salt. The main ingredients (flour, water and salt) are mixed together until they become like pancake batter. Layers of batter are baked using a sac which is a spherical metal lid used for baking.
