Good! but at first time a bit soft,meanwhile is not crispy, anyway taste was nice.
The recipe was clear and worth the effort! Thank you ......delicious!
You just brightened up our day even more. Thank you :) --DK
I couldnt have gotten a better comment than yours either :) Thank you --DK
Glad to be part of your journey :) Here's to good food and our trials towards eating well, cha ching :) --DK
I discard it after using it in the syrup just before pouring it over the baklava --DK
PLs see the link that I provide in the "For the Cover" section under Ingredients. It shows how to make Filo pastry and you can decide if its easy for you or not. --DK
Nope not always. There are multiple variations distinct to regions they are made in. As far as the sweetening goes they are broadly two ways - one that uses syrup like the one above or the one that uses honey --DK
Yes, you would be correct. Lemme change it :) --DK
Pls refer Step 7 --DK
I am so glad to hear that. Thank you Jaysun :) --DK
Dear Sumi, thank you so much for trying out this recipe. You have wonderful pictures as well and I am glad to be of your reference :) Here's to Baklava! - DK
I can relate to exactly what you mean!!! Which is practically what I thought I should be doing - the no. of times I opened the fridge to scrap a little bite was more than 5 and no. of times I wanted to do it was like 50-60 times!!!! Shucks! Never knew one piece of baklava could do this to me :) -- DK
Oh yes, I have seen it :)
What happened to your Oven? I thought you had one?
Wow! I wish you are able to give some to the Bulgarian owner - that will not only make your day, it would def. make mine!!!! :-D
Hi Selma, thanks for your input. Its just like the 'worldwide famous curry powder' which is infact not used that much in Indian cooking!!!! :) Unless one is really in that country, its hard to know what's authentic and what's not. From the vast research I did on the net and this recipe - which actually was a greek one - I found cinnamon in 99% of the recipes hence was not really sure of which one was authentic. But I appreciate your valuable input. Great to know about cinnamon! :) -- DK
Hi Judy, I am so glad to hear that this post helped to bring back the sweet memories. Sugar High this baklava sure is! :)
