It is made of more than five layers. Between each layer they put dough coated with butter and cream. First layer is layer of curd, next layer contains poppy, then they put in the layer of walnut, and the final layer is layer of apples. Layers may vary to from one cook to another and from one place to another. After final layer of dough they cover the dough with sour cream and some sugar.
