Turkish Delight or Lokum as it is called, is a middle eastern traditional sweet.

This candy is delicately flavoured, i have used the Rose essence and Rose Water! 
Brought all the way from Dubai by my daughter! Nuts and dry fruits are also added to it and then rolled in icing sugar! It takes time when done on Gas , i have made this in Microwave oven, in 20 mts and the result is fantastic! The pictures r the proof! 

Rose flavoured Turkish Delight. 

3 cups water
2 cups sugar
4 tbsp gelatin, unflavoured. I have used Sailor brand
1/4 cup icing sugar
2/3 rd cup corn flour
1/4 teasp Creme of Tarter
Red color, pink
Rose essence few drops, rose water 1/2 tsp
Add in a micro safe bowl..3 cups water, 2 cups sugar and 4 tbsp gelatin. Stir it well. I have used a Borosil Dish.
Put it in the oven, cook for 7 mts on high, my oven is 900 w.
Remove, mix well again. 
Put it back and cook for another 7 mts! On High! 
Sift icing sugar, cornflour and Cream  of Tarter.mix it well .
Add to the gelatin liquid, mix well and put back on high for 6 mts. 
Remove. Add color, essence. Mix well. Its a good idea to strain it now once! 
Take tray or moulds, but lightly oil them with a brush, and pour the mixture into them. 
Cool it outside for 10 mts and put it uncovered in fridge for 6 hrs.
Cut it into pieces. 
Mix icing sugar with little cornflour…say 4 tbsp icing sugar to 1 tbsp cornflor.
Roll them into this mixture.  They r ready! Pretty pink beauties! 

The ready mixture.
The moulds are chocolate moulds.its a good idea to pour it into the beaker and pour it out into the moulds.
The flat trays were easier to use than the moulds. 
For a first timer, dont use moulds, go for a plain tray, oiled. 
Easier to remove and cut into pieces.
Close up ! Yummy! Pretty !

Couldnt take many pics since it was a fast cooking procedure.

Chocolate Freezer Pie

 Summer is coming… At least I hope it is. Right now I’m sitting inside under a big blanket as a Nor’easter dumps a ridiculous amount of rain on New Jersey. Spring so far has been cold and wet. I’m ready to wear sun dresses and…

Double Coffee Affogato

Apparently the big food trend is all about bold flavors. If you see something on the menu that has a “hint of…” just pass it up. That’s so 2016. This year you want to be hit in the face with the flavor! That is why…

Cranberry Bars

It may be the first day of Spring today, but there is still snow on the ground outside. As much as I want to eat local asparagus and new potatoes, my farmer’s market only have onions and pickles for sale. Instead of being sad about…
