What about the word “baklava”?

It’s interesting that with so many peoples around the Central Asian region claiming baklava as their own, that almost all of them use the same word to describe it. So where does that word come from? Most linguists believe it’s Mongolian, which adds weight to the Turkish origin argument, since before they settled in Anatolia, the Turks were Central Asian nomads, just like the Mongols.
