Sheki Pakhlavasi Recipe


For Sheki Pakhlavasi, make liquid dough adding the rice flour into 120ml of water.

Cook grid-shaped rishta by pouring the dough through a special funnel with 11 holes into a big heated pot. Grind the kernel of a hazelnut and mix with ground seeds of coriander and cardamom.

Butter a round copper tray, put 8 rishtas on each other and put stuffing on them. Then put other 5 rishtas and shape into a round form.

Make square patterns on the baklava using the saffron infusion; bake each side over charcoal in a brazier for 15-20 minutes.
