For the Filling
2 cups (8 oz) finely chopped almonds
1 cup (4 oz) finely chopped walnuts
1/4 cup (2 oz ) caster (superfine) sugar
2-3 tbsp bread crumbs (optional. It helps to bind the filling. I dint use it in this recipe. I came to know of this trick later)
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground cloves
For the syrup
2 cups (1 lb) sugar
2 cups (16 fl oz) water
1 stick cinnamon
1 tbsp lemon juice
For the cover
150 grams (5 oz) unsalted butter, melted
12 oz packet filo pastry (375g) (see how to make Phyllo dough from scratch here)
First you have to put all the ingredients in a bowl and try to combine the mixture until it becomes blended in that time place all the ingredients for the syrup together in a saucepan and bring it to a boil, while stirring for the sugar to dissolve.
Simmer for 10 minutes and leave it to cool.
Brush a 12X10 in baking dish with butter. Brush 10 sheets of filo with melted butter.
Lay them on the dish one by one.
Spread the filling in the dish.
Now top it off with further 10-12 sheets of pastry, buttering each sheet as needed. Now brush the top of the pastry with more butter.
With a knife, score the top layers in large diamond shapes.
Bake in a preheated 160C (325F) oven for 1 hour or until the top turns golden brown. If you find that the top is turning color too quickly, then cover the top with foil.
Remove from the oven and slowly pour the syrup over the top.
Now let it sit for at least 5-6 hours for it to absorb the syrup and have a nice meal
