Baklava Cups


Baklava is a rich, sweet pastry made of layers of filo filled with chopped nuts and sweetened and held together with syrup or honey.
We tried it in a cups, Because cups are easy to serve and easy to eat tongue emoticon smile emoticon
My guru maharaj was coming and I heard that he likes Baklava, so thought to offer him .. But the problem was i didn't had any idea about it .. then one of my dear friend Deepali helped me out making this, and it came out perfect ... everyone liked it.
