R is the only one in our family who likes turkish delight. I don’t know why he likes it, but he does and since he is the only one, he rarely gets it. I found this recipe on the thermomix forum and thought I would try it for him.He loves it! I tried it and it is okay, but I really don’t like turkish delight.
Turkish Delight Squares
- 280 g cold water
- 3 TBSP powdered gelatine
- 440 g raw sugar
- 1 strip of lemon zest I didn't use this
- ½ tsp lemon juice
- ½ tsp tartaric acid
- 1 ½ tsp rosewater
- pink food colouring a few drops
- 60 g icing sugar - to coat
- 20 g cornflour - to coat
- Brush a silicone loaf pan lightly with water. It is definitely easier to get out if you use silicone!
- Add the water and gelatine into the bowl of the Bellini and mix SP5, 5 secs.
- Dissolve gelatine by cooking 5mins, 100deg, SP2
- Add the sugar, lemon zest and juice and cook for 8mins, ST temp, SP2
- Remove the lemon zest and discard, if you used it.
- Add the tartaric acid, rosewater and food colouring into the bowl and mix SP5, 5 secs.
- Pour into the silicone loaf pan and sit on the bench (not in the fridge) for at least 6 hours or overnight. I left mine for 7 hours.
- Add icing sugar and cornflour to Bellini bowl and mix SP8, 10secs.
- Place some of the combined icing sugar and cornflour mixture onto a bench or cutting board.
- Turn the silicone loaf pan edges outwards and the turkish delight should come out easily. I used an oiled butter knife around the edges first, just to make sure.
- Sprinkle more of the icing sugar/cornflour mixture on top of the turkish delight.
- Using an oiled knife, cut the turkish delight into small squares and sprinkle the newly cut edges with the icing/cornflour mix.
- Store in a plastic container.
