 Baklavas

 

Ingredients for the dough:

 

1 kg of flour

1 spoon of Salt

lukewarm water

a little vinegar

For the filling:

9 cups of chopped walnuts

8 cups of almonds

1 cup of sesame seeds

1 spoon of fresh nutmeg

1 spoon of. fresh ground cloves

1 spoon of sweet cinnamon

half a cup of sugar

For the syrup:

10 cups of water

5.5 cups of sugar

A timber of cinnamon

10 cloves

juice of one lemon

oil

 

 

Initially we prepare the dough. In a bowl, we put some flour with salt and after opening a hole in the middle, add the water with some vinegar and stir them well. When the dough is ready, let it rest for 15 minutes, by covering them with a towel. Afterwards, split them into 12 balls. Then turn them to leaves. Sprinkle them with a little flour to prevent sticking and roll out each sheet to the size of the pan. Initially open only three leafs in order not to dry out.

 

The second stage is to form the baklava into the pan. After you put some oil into the pan, lay the first three leaves. Then, pour in a little of the filling, which consists of all the above ingredients chopped and mixed. Then open four other leafs, and in between put some stuffing and grease individually with oil. Finally, open three more leaves and put them over.

Burn lightly enough oil and remove it from the fire. After you cut the baklava into diamond shapes sprinkle each piece with a spoonful of the hot oil soup. Bake in the oven for one hour at 180 degrees Celsius. While preparing the syrup, boil water in a saucepan with sugar, cinnamon and cloves. At the end remove it from heat, add some lemon juice and let the syrup cool. In the last phase, pure the cold syrup over the warm baklava. Leave it for four hours and it is ready.
