IMG_20160725_174252 edit

Turkish Delight (TD) is traditional dessert from Turkiye. We got the dessert as a gift from relative who come back from that country. The variant we got is :

Cifte Kavrulmus Duble Fistikli Lokum

Double Roasted Pistachio Rich Turkish Delight

Locals called TD as Loqum. The shape is dice-like, with glutinous texture like jelly. The taste is sweet and the smell is nice. Each ‘dice’ is wrapped with sugary flour or coconut flour so they don’t get sticky with each another.

Loqum is available in many variants, such as orange, lemon, rose, mint, also cinnamon. The premium/exclusive one is stuffed with pieces of hazelnut / dates / pistachio.
