This may not be the authentic recipe for the middle eastern delicacy Baklava. I have never tasted one or I have very faint memories of having a small piece at a friend’s place. But I really dont remember the texture and taste. But I have been seeing it in a couple of blogs for a couple of years, I have always wanted to try this. I could imagine the taste of nuts wrapped in a layer of flaky pastry sheets soaked in sugar syrup infused with lot of yummy unimaginable flavours. So I finally made it yesterday. It tasted delicious . My hubby had a couple of pieces in a go though my kids did not enjoy this delicacy. The friends with whom I shared this also liked it.
I referred a lot of blogs for making this delicacy . I tried to make it as simple as possible and took lot of tips from different blogs i reffered to. So as I said this is not the original recipe for baklava , but a cheats version!! The actual baklava uses phyllo dough , whereas I used spring roll pastry sheets as it is the closest to it. Spring roll sheets are readilly available. But if you find phyllo dough and if you are keen on using it, you certainly can . Infact you can even search on the internet for making phyllo dough at home as its definitely possible. But I also read in a blog that spring roll sheets are easier to handle. Also I read that if you have tasted authentic baklava, then this might not be very interesting to you, but if you havent, then I am sure you are going to like this one.
Basically the recipe is very easy and I had fun making it. But it does take a lot of time, but of course the result is definitely worth your time. I hope you try this one and let me know if you liked it!!
