For those of you who have not tried it before, Baklava is a rich, sweet pastry made of layers of filo filled with chopped nuts and sweetened and held together with syrup or honey. It is characteristic of the cuisines of the Levant, the Caucasus, Balkans, Maghreb, and of Central and West Asia.
This Mouth watering pastry tastes unbelievable when it is topped with Fresh Cream and Pistachio or (a personal favorite) when it is warmed up slightly and topped with Vanilla Ice Cream.
Nestled within an unassuming residential building in Mumbai, there exists a kitchen which dishes out authentic Baklava with all the original flavors passed down through time immemorial.
Not only that, Turkish Affaire, started by Neeta Talreja, offers only Pure Vegetarian Baklava which has a shelf life of a month without refrigeration!
Crushed Pistachio kernels are nestled between layers of hand stretched filo pastry, topped with rose, honey, and pure clarified butter.
They offer some great options too, in addition to the classic recipe, they have varieties of flavors such as Salted Caramel, Date and Walnut, Mixed Nuts etc.
Says Neeta,”We go to great lengths to make sure our clients have a fantastic overall experience. We meet them and understand exactly what they are looking for in terms of personalisation and packaging. Our goal is to offer a great product with great value and convenience. Once a client has placed an order with us for Favors, they no longer have anything to worry about”
“We are different from our competitors because we offer a taste of original Turkish Baklava which is impossible to find in Mumbai”, Says Neeta.
