For syrup you need

Sitar 4 cups

Water 2 1/2 cups

Lemon juice 1 tablespoon

Cinnamon 3 inches stick


For dough you need

All-purpose flour 3 cups

Egg 1

Baking powder 2 teaspoon

Oil 1/4 cup

Milk 3/4 cup


Plus you need

150g melted butter

and a mixture of

Cornstarch (2 cups)


All-purpose flour (1/2 cup)

to sprinkle between dough sheets...this mixture will help dough sheets to not stick together.


For filling you need

Nuts of your choice – in this recipe she used 1 cup pistachio and 1 cup almonds chopped well or use food processor.





Put as much nuts as you can ...because baklava tastes great with more and more nuts.


1. Take all the syrup ingredients in a pan.

2. Bring it to boil and cook for 8-10 minutes

3. Let it cool before using .because we don’t want our baklava to get soggy. Hot syrup will make baklava soft .

4. Mix together all the dough ingredients and make a dough.

Most probably you will not need water for the dough ...but if you need you can use a little water.

5. Keep kneading the dough until it stops sticking to the pan.

6. let the dough rest for 15 minutes.

7. Make phyllo sheets as shown in the video.

Or use readymade phyllo sheets.

8. Brush a good amount of melted butter on phyllo sheets before and after shaping the baklava. Butter will give your baklava a nice colour and crisp. For a perfect taste of baklava fill in as much nuts as possible ..

9. Bake it in preheated oven at 150°c for 40 to 45 minutes.

10. Pour sugar syrup on baklava .

11. Let baklava sit in sugar syrup for 4 to 6 hours for best results.

Enjoy your homemade baklava with a hot cup of tea.
