Method

For the filling

  • Remove the stem of the tomatoes and score them on the bottom side, creating a cross. 
  • Add the tomatoes into the boiling water for about 10-20 seconds. 
  • Directly transfer the tomatoes to a bowl with ice and water.
  • Remove the peel of the tomatoes and cut them into 4. 
  • Place the same pot over medium heat and heat the olive oil.
  • Cut the onions into thin slices and sauté them for 4-5 minutes until they are tender.
  • Finely chop the garlic and sauté it for 1 minute.
  • Add the tomato paste and sauté for 1 more minute.
  • Finely chop the rosemary, the thyme, and add them to the pot along with the tomato pieces, the sugar, salt, pepper, and the bay leaves. Mix with a ladle.
  • Cook for 1 hour and 20 minutes until the juices of the tomatoes are evaporated. Occasionally stir with the ladle. 
  • Once the juices are evaporated, remove the pot from the heat and discard the bay leaves.
  • Transfer the filling to a bowl and let it cool.

  • Spread one phyllo sheet into the pan, lightly grease it, and cover with a second phyllo sheet. 
  • Follow the same process for 5 phyllo sheets.
