Sari Burma Baklava, is a popular Middle Eastern Dessert that's nutty, sweet, and absolutely delicious!

Unlike traditional BaklaVa, Sari Burma Baklava (Saragli in Greek) is rolled instead of layered, making it much easier to prepare.


Pistachios Walnuts Almonds Sugar Cardamom Cinnamon Phyllo Dough Butter

Syrup Ingredients

Water Sugar Lemon Juice Rose Water

Place butter into a large measuring cup and cover with a napkin. Microwave for 30-45 seconds or until melted.

The butter will separate, with the butterfat on top and the milk solids and water on the bottom.

Grind pistachios in a food processor until fine; set aside. Next, grind the walnuts, and almonds until finely ground.

Mix nuts, sugar, cardamom, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Set aside 1/2 of the ground pistachios for sprinkling on top.

 Place phyllo dough on a clean working surface and brush with clarified butter. Fold the sheet in half and brush the top with additional butter.

Place dowel 1" to 2" from the bottom across the phyllo sheet, then fold the phyllo dough under the dowel over it.

Sprinkle the sheet with 2 tablespoons of the nut mixture, leaving a few inches on top and bottom of the sheet bare.

Roll the sheet tightly over the dowel, starting at the bottom and working towards the top.

Push the roll together, starting at the center and working towards the ends.

Carefully slide the dowel out and place the rolled baklava inside of a buttered 9" x 13" baking tray. Continue until all the ingredients are used up.

Brush the top of the Baklava Rolls with any remaining butter.

Using a sharp knife, slice each roll into 3 pieces.

Bake for 35 minutes, or until golden.

Remove Burma Baklava from the oven and immediately drench the rolls with the cooled syrup. Listen for this sizzling sound...
