One the bloggers I follow regularly is Sapana Behl who writes at Cooking with Sapana. A pure vegetarian, Sapana has the most delightful range of recipes on her blog. Right now I am eyeing her Sweet Potato Brownie.

When I requested Sapana for a guest post she agreed immediately! More importantly she came up with Baklava, a recipe that I have been meaning to try for quite a while. In fact just yesterday I was browsing an online Gourmet shop for Filo sheets. What is it that Paul Coelho wrote in The Alchemist? Ah yes, “And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” So true in this case!

Thank you, Sapana for this wonderful recipe for Baklava Rolls. Over to you!


First of all, I would like to thank Aruna from the bottom of my heart. When she asked me to do a guest post for her, I was so excited and literally jumping with joy. It’s been almost two years since I did guest post for someone. Stay happy, keep blogging and eating. God bless you.
Aruna is a versatile blogger and Aaharam is her beautiful space where she blogs regularly. I like the simplicity and authenticity of her posts and especially love the way she composes her posts. Recently I was
going through her recipes and found so many traditional and delicious recipe like Matar NimonaPineapple KesariDimer Jhol, Traditional Christmas Cake and many more recipes that you would want to try. She has the same habit of collecting recipes like I have and that is truly a nostalgic coincidence. I wish you all the success in your life. May you reach many more milestones in the blogging world and achieve whatever you want.
