How to cook this, oriental baklava?

Every year it is more difficult for a modern person to surprise him with something, especially with such a common thing as sweets and desserts, but once upon a time, when sugar was a real rarity, unusual oriental sweets were equal in value to gold.

Various magical properties were attributed to them and, naturally, only great Viziers, sultans and respectable nobles were able to pamper themselves with such pleasure.

Baklava is one of these delicacies, which, thanks to the amazing combination of seemingly simple components, can surprise and interest, is one of those delicacies that make Eastern cuisine one of the most mysterious and unique cuisines in the world.

How to cook baklava with your own hands? It seems to be nothing complicated, judging from the technology of the recipe, but, to the great surprise of the hostess, who will try to fully comply with all these recommendations, the result is not always the way it should be. Why is that?

Baklava is not the easiest dish, it is thoroughly steeped in subtleties, without the knowledge and observance of which it will not be possible to get exactly the delicacy that is served today in Turkish or Arabian restaurants.

The true origin of the baklava is still debated between the two countries, claiming the title of its homeland - Turkey and Greece. According to one of the popular versions, this wonderful dessert was first invented by the chef of Sultan Fatih, as evidenced by a book with recipes from the 15th century, which is still kept in the museum of Ottoman sultans, in Istanbul.

Thus, it can be judged that the original idea of ​​this wonderful dish belongs to the Turks. At first, this dish was not available to ordinary people, but, literally in a few centuries, the situation changed radically and, the most delicious baklava, could already be found in almost every city of the Ottoman Empire.

After her recipes have spread around the world, each of them has its own peculiarities and secrets. Today, such a dessert is successfully cooked in Turkey, Azerbaijan, Greece, Armenia, Russia and even in America! Technologies may differ, but the essence remains the same: it is a delicate dessert in which the thinnest layers of dough are soaked with honey syrup and nut filling.

Some useful subtleties

  • According to the technology, dough sheets, layer by layer, are greased with butter and chopped roasted nuts, cut into rhombus, and then baked. In order not to spoil the type of dessert, you only need to cut it to the layer with nuts, otherwise the bottom layers will rise and spoil the whole type of baking.
  • Baklava syrup is poured only after it has already been baked: it is poured in an even layer over the cuts. After this dish, it is important to leave in a cool place for 4-5 hours, so that it is well soaked. To the dish has acquired a special sophistication, you can add a couple of drops of rose water or vanilla into the syrup.
  • The following fact is interesting: the Turks claim that baklava is a very useful dish for men, because, thanks to the magical mixing of honey, nuts and light dough, it contributes to an increase in male power. But for women baklava can be harmful, because literally 100 g of such a dessert contains as much as 600 calories! According to many nutritionists, this is precisely the reason for the pomp of the indigenous Turkish women’s forms, because they are used to savoring this dish almost every day.

Turkish Baklava Recipe with Pistachios

Well, let's move on from theory to practice, try to create a baklava with our own hands, which today is served in Turkish restaurants - delicate and elegant. Let's start with the test, for it we need:

  • flour - 500 g,
  • butter - 50 g,
  • milk - 150 ml,
  • sour cream - 150 ml,
  • eggs - 2 pcs.,
  • dry yeast - 5 g,
  • sugar, salt - on a pinch.

We'll have to work on the dough, but it's worth it: we preheat the milk in advance in a small container, but do not bring it to a boil, mix it with yeast, wait for them to rise. In a separate vessel, mix the butter with flour, beat the eggs, and then pour the sour cream, mix everything well with salt.

Next, pour the yeast mixture into the prepared dough, again knead everything thoroughly, you need to achieve such a consistency, so that it is a little harder than the weed, so say experienced chefs. Next, the dough is laid out in a separate cup, covered with a towel and remains for 1-1.5 hours "to rest." And we at this time will prepare the filling.

What we need:

  • butter - 250 g,
  • walnuts and pistachios - 300 g,
  • powdered sugar - 250 g,
  • Cinnamon - 1 tsp,
  • vanilla, cardamom - for taste.

You must first fry the nuts in the oven, then grind: you can with a knife, but it is a long time, so it's best in a meat grinder. In a blender, you should not grind, because as a result you risk getting dust, not small pieces. Next, mix the nuts with vanilla, cinnamon, cardamom (half a teaspoon is enough) and powdered sugar. Melt the butter in a separate container.

Now the most important thing begins - we collect the baklava. For this we need:

  • honey - 150 g,
  • egg - 1 pc.,
  • nuts for decoration.

To begin with, we will prepare a form - it is better that it be with high sides, the size is about 20 cm by 30 cm. If this is not found, then you can use an ordinary frying pan. Form pre-lubricated with vegetable oil.

After it fits, we divide it into 11 equal parts and another 1 part, which should be 2 times larger than any part of the remaining 11. We take this large part and begin to roll to a thickness of not more than 1 mm, and in size, so that the dough completely covers the shape, the edges should hang down. We gently twist the rolled layer onto a rolling pin, transfer and form it with the help of it. Dough lubricated with butter, melted in advance, you need to calculate it in such a way that after lubricating all layers of the workpiece, left half of it.

Then we take one of 11 equal parts, roll out to the size of the form, the thickness is again no more than 1 mm, wrap on a rolling pin and transfer to the baking sheet again, filling them with the first layer of dough, which is greased with butter.

It is important that all other layers of dough do not go to the sides of the form, as the first.

Grease the second layer again with oil, lay out the nut mixture (try to calculate it so that the powder is enough for all 10 layers). Next - the next layer, everything happens in exactly the same sequence and according to a general principle.

After you have laid the 11th layer of dough, the hanging edges of the first layer can be cut off, leaving about 2 cm. Then they need to be tucked in so that they cover the topmost layer of baklava. The edges are covered with a beaten egg.

We proceed to the last, 12th layer of dough: roll out and lay out in such a way as to completely close the 11th layer, and cover the surface with a beaten egg.

Cut the dough diagonally, but not completely. Put nuts on the rhombus for decoration, let it brew for 15 minutes, and then bake for another 15 minutes in an oven at a temperature of 180 °. After the time has expired, we pour out the residues of butter, bake again until browning.

Honey mix with 100 ml of hot water, pour them (not all!) Baklava after she reddened. Again, put in the oven, give a good redden and get. Give the baklava a good cool, again pour each diamond with the remnants of honey syrup and let it stand for about 2 hours.

Cook this dessert correctly and with pleasure!

Number of servings

To cook honey syrup.
For the preparation of honey syrup, combine honey (500 g) with water (100 ml), bring to a boil and reduce to a thin yarn.

The time of boiling syrup will depend on the thickness of the bottom and walls of the pan, as well as on the intensity of heating. The stronger the heat, the faster the syrup will increase.
In order not to miss the moment of syrup readiness, it is better to test more often for a thin thread.

Test for a thin thread. Pour a teaspoonful of some syrup on a cold plate. Then use the bottom of the spoon to gently press on the surface of the syrup and immediately lift the spoon up. At the same time for the spoon stretch thin string of syrup.

Council Instead of honey syrup, you can pour baklava with honey-sugar syrup.
For cooking honey sugar syrup.
To dissolve sugar with water and to slightly reduce, removing the formed foam.

How to cook baklava

This oriental dish is a multi-layered dessert, soaked in syrup (often sugar). Every Turkish mistress knows how to make baklava, and each has their own - a special, most successful - recipe. Sweetness is made from puff pastry with nuts. Roll out the base is very thin, and then fold it into a rectangular shape. However, it is possible and the option of twisting sheets with cylinders. For the impregnation use sorbet (less often - honey) with rose water and lemon juice, and for the nut layer - pistachio.

The classic mixture used during the times of the Ottoman Empire, for impregnation of layers, was prepared from water-ice - water-boiled sugar, acidified with lemon juice. However, most recipes (Armenian, Baku, etc.) use honey syrup for baklava. Choose any:

  • Classical impregnation - 200 ml of water, 2 glasses of sugar, a spoonful of lemon juice. It boils for 3-4 minutes.
  • Honey - water with any honey 1: 1 is heated until the latter is dissolved.

Open sources claim that this delicacy is made from a layered basis, but this is no longer the only true option. Armenian, Yerevan, Crimean variations imply a soft dough for baklava, similar to butter, and the Greek prepares for filo. Even the recipes with a yeast lush basis are popular with professionals. As a result, the dough can be any - only the correct rolling and assembly in layers is important.
