We flatten the parsty balls by the rolling pin to form the tray-sized thin layers of the pastry. We put 7 layers on the tray, sprinkle ground pistachios, pour melted chocolate on it and put another 7 layers of pastry on the top. We cut it into rectangular pieces.
And we pour the melted butter on it. Then, we bake it in a hot oven on 180 degrees for 30 minutes.
The syrup: we boil a mix of 5 glasses of water and 4 glasses of sugar for 15 minutes then we add a few drops of lemon juice and boil it for more 1-2 minutes. We pour the syrup on the Baklava after removing it from the oven. It will be ready to be served after percolating the syrup into it.
