Take 2 phyllo pastry sheets at a time, smear them with oil, smear with water along the ends and wrap them into rolls.
From thus formed rolls, cut out pieces of the same size. Heat oil in a deep container on moderate heat (not too high) and fry them.
Dip the fried Kourkoubinias in the cold syrup. Arrange them in a suitable deep tray or bowl and pour on the remaining syrup.
