Walnuts in


Walnut Baklava


  • 16 phyllo sheets
  • 1 cup California walnuts, chopped
  • 100g butter

For the Sugar syrup (to pour on top):

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 5 tablespoon water
  • 1 inch cinnamon stick
  • 4-5 whole cardamom
  • 1 lime (To prevent crystallisation)


    1. Melt the butter on low flame.
    2. Take one phyllo sheet & generously spread some butter on it, sprinkle chopped walnuts, place one more phyllo sheet on it, brush it once again with some butter & sprinkle walnuts.
    3. Roll it up using a chopstick or any thin stick. Pull it together to create beautiful creases. Make 7 to 8 of these or more depending the size of your tray. Cut it as desired.
    4. Place this in a baking tray & bake this on a pre heated oven at 180°C for 25 to 30 mins or until it is golden.
    5. Remove it from the oven & while it is still hot, pour some sugar syrup on it.
    6. For making the sugar syrup, simply bring all the ingredients to a boil and let it cook down. Don’t over cook it else it will crystallise.
    7. Let it soak for 3 hours and then serve or you can store in an air tight container for upto a week.
