Baklava Delight


                                        First of all thanks a ton to all viewers. It's been more then 2000 viewers just in a week. I feel blessed and thankful to all. My achievement is small in this big food world, but to share this achievement ,'Kuch Mitha Ho Jaye'!!!! 
                                 I'm sharing recipe about Baklava with some indian touch, ...PHIR BHI DIL HAI HINDUSTANI,,,hope you all will make Baklava in my style next time soon and always:)  This Baklava filled with besan ladoo or Magas. We usually makes Besan Ladoo or Magas as Prasad or Bhog for Lord. And as it's divine recipe I just tried to make simple fusion with it. Next time you try this divine recipe and offer as Prasad to Lord.



                 Baklava is made in every region of Greece and throughout the Middle East. On the bottom and top-, phyllo is alternated with various filling to from multiple layers. Nuts filling and Besan filling are the HEROs of the this baklava in all. In other hand Baklava is healthy dessert too, because it  contains lots of nuts. 
                      Talking about Nuts and Nutrition., so Nuts have it all!!!! Rich in energy, vitamins, minerals, proteins, omega-3 and lots of more. Everyone have to have handful of Nuts include in daily meal. Do You want to include nuts with some twisted recipes, in your daily meal?, just need to follow my recipe as simple as this.
