Start by making the syrup for Baklava-

4) Strain & leave aside.

To make the baklava-
1) Take a bowl & to it add the chopped & crushed pistachios, walnuts & almonds one by one.
2) Add the icing sugar & mix.
3) Take 20 filo pastry sheets & lay them out on a flat surface.
4) Take a rectangular baking dish & place it upside down on the pastry sheets.
5) Scrape off the edges with a sharp-edged knife.
6) The pastry sheets should come out looking rectangular.
7) Take the same baking dish & apply some melted butter at the bottom, followed by all purpose flour.
8) Place the first filo pastry sheet.
9) Apply butter & add the nut mixture. Lay it out evenly.
10) Place the next filo pastry sheet.
11) Apply butter & all-purpose flour, followed by the nut mix.
12) In this way, keep layering up the remaining sheets. Make sure you maintain the same order.
