Baklavadakia (Mini Baklava)

  • 1 packet of phylo (ready dough)
  • 100 gr of crushed almonds
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp rosewater
  • 1/4 cup sunflower oil (6-8 tbsp)
Ingredients for syrup

  • 1 3/4 glass sugar
  • 2 glasses of water
  • 4 tbsp of rosewater
Method for syrup
  • Mix water and sugar in a small pan
  • Warm it up for 5 mins and then add rosewater
Method for Baklavadakia
  • Take one phylo and brush it separately with sunflower oil (only the one side)
  • Add cinnamon, almonds, rosewater and sugar in a bowl and mix well
  • Pour one tea spoon of the above mixture in the edge of the phylo in one line and roll it like a cigar and then make it into a spiral (see picture)
  • Using the same method, add rest of the mixture in all phylo and then place the spiral baklava in an oiled pan
  • Brush them with sunflower and cook in oven, in 185 C, for 20-25 mins until they become golden colored
  • Take them out and immediately pour syrup on top (make sure syrup is cold)
  • Cover them with a towel for 10 mins to ensure syrup is soaked and then serve
