Recipe's preparation

    Turkish Delight
  1. Gentle stir settingSpray a rectangular loaf pan with oil spray to grease. Line the base and side with non-stick baking paper, allowing the sides to overhang.

  2. Place the sugar, lemon juice, and 300ml of the water into the TM bowl. Cook at 100C/speed 4/15 minutes to dissolve and cook the sugar. Cook at Varoma/speed 4/40 minutes, or until soft ball syrup stage [120C]. Using a tea towel to protect yourself from the very hot steam, stir and scrape the sides and base every five or ten minutes. Take great care to avoid the steam and hot syrup.

  3. Place cornflour, cream of tartar, gelatine and remaining water into a small bowl and mix together with a spoon. Pour the mixture through the measuring cup aperture of the TM while running on speed 4 to mix it into the sugar mixture.

  4. Cook 100C/60 minutes/speed 4 or until it starts to change colour to a lightly yellowish tone, or cook longer until it turns the right colour.

  5. When it looks relatively clear and yellowish in tone, add rosewater to taste and the colouring to your preferred colourtone.

  6. Pour into the square pan and leave to cool. Once cool, cover and place in the refrigerator.

  7. Cut into squares and roll in a mixture of half cornflour and icing sugar. Store in an airtight container.

Tip

The sweet should be firm but chewy and stretchy, and it will still be a little cloudy, but not too cloudy.

In the picture, I used 1/4 teaspoon of rose pink colouring, too much!

    I have just made this and popped it into the fridge. Should it be 75g cornflour or 130? I'm a bit confused.

    Hi there, I just made3 this recipe using less cornflour [130 grams total] of cornflour and it was fine I have amended the recipe accordingly, and I halved the recipe for a more manageable amount in the Thermomixdue to the high heat levels and risk of splashing.

    Has anyone tried this recipe for Turkish Delight? 

    Are the quantities correct for the ingredients? Specifically the cornflour.

    When doing the following: 

    3.

    Place remaining water, cornflour, cream of tartar, gelatine and remaining water into a small bowl and mix together with a spoon. Pour the mixture through the measuring cup aperture of the TM while running on speed 4 to mix it into the sugar mixture.

     

    I placed into a bowl the remaining water (200g) and added the cornflour (180g) the cream of tartar and gelatine and when I tried to stir it was almost set solid. It appears it have soooo much cornflour. It also says remaining water twice, was there more water not included in ingredients? I added a lot more water to get it to a consistency where it could be stirred and added about a third of this to the sugar mixture, but as I thought it has not set. I'm thinking of trying to return it to the TM and adding more cornflour or gelatine or both to see if I can save it. Any suggestions?
