Caster sugar -400gms
Crushed pistachios -2tbsp
Red or pink colour-2drops
Lightly grease baking tin with oil .Here I used square shaped glassware
Or u can place cling wrap in the bottom of the vessel and keep aside
Pour water into a bowl and sprinkle gelatine little by little and keep aside for 10 minutes .
Then add rose water ,gelatine mix and sugar to a large heavy bottomed pan ..Mix well
Now heat this by stirring continuously till all the gelatine and sugar gets dissolve.
Now reduce the heat and let this mix cook for 25 minutes ..No need to stir in between ..
After 25 minutes take out the pan and to this add lemon juice ,colour and crushed
pistachio .Mix well ..leave for 5 minutes
Then pour into the greased tin and leave for 2 hours (or until it reaches room temperature )
Then keep it in the refrigerator for 12 hours by covering the top using cling wrap
Mix cornflour and sieved Icing sugar well and spread well in a tray
Here I used cling wrap, so just turn the vessel upside to the sugar mix .Remove the Cling wrap and sprinkle sugar mix both sides of the delight.
Then dip the knife in the sugar mix and cut our turkish delight into small squares (by dipping the knife in the sugar will help to cut the delight easily)
Again roll/toss/dust each pieces in the cornflour sugar mix and keep in a air tight container..For that …
In the bottom of the container first lay a baking parchment paper and sprinkle some sugar mix then place one layer then sprinkle the sugar and place the paper and do the same procedure with the rest pieces ..
When i saw this recipe got excited and tried the same day ..
The problem I faced here is with my elder son:( coz he did like the texture and all.. but the smell … 😉 he was not that happy with the rosewater smell ..So next time I am going to add strawberry essence(his favourite) instead of rosewater and make him happy ..
And this is the simple version of Turkish delight ..In the authentic version have to stir for soooo long and used cornflour instead of gelatine ..As I did tasted both version ,this version does 90% justice to the real one ..With the two kids running around ,not able to think of doing the authentic in near future .. 🙂 And I will def share the recipe with u my dear ones when I do ..
So dear mamas get ready and make ur kids happy 🙂
