Now put the pot on the heat. Simmer and gently stir the mixture until the batter turns into a thick smooth paste. (it will take about 10 minutes to reach a soft consistency). Remove from the heat. Wet inside the cup with plain water and pour in the batter.

And it will take 25-3o minutes to reach a hard consistency like as you see in the following photos). Now  pour in candy batter. Let lokum set up in room temperature until firm to cut and handle it. Cut it with a sharp knife into squares, round, lozenge.

Generously dust the lukme with shredded coconut, or powdered sugar and corn starch.

لوکوم ترکی

لوکوم یا لوقما یکی از شیرینی‌های سنتی ترکیه هست و درواقع لوکوم رو میشه جزو شیرینی ژله محسوب کرد که غلظت بیشتری داره. لوکوم یا لقمه رو میشه به صورت ساده یا مغزدار تهیه کرد. در انگلیسی لوکوم به Turkish delight معروف هست و در عربی راحت الحلقوم گفته میشه چون بافت این شیرینی نرم هست و برای گلو یا حلقوم راحت هست که قورتش بده 🙂

راحت الحلقوم ایرانی وباسلوق خودمون هم‌نوع دیگر این شیرینی هست .

لوکوم یا لوقما از ترکیب آب میوه مثل پرتقاللیموانارگریپ فروت با نشاسته و شکر درست میشه. طعم دهنده هایی مثل گلاب – بهار نارنچ هم میشه اضافه کرد و از مغز بادامگردوپسته یا فندق هم میشه برای اضافه کردن به لوکوم استفاده کرد.

در آخر کار هم که لوکوم حاضر شد میشه با پودر قند یا نارگیل خشک شده اونها را پوشاند.

مواد لازم

چهارصد میلی لیتر آب پرتقال

هفتادوپنچ گرم شکر سفید

دو ق غ نشاسته ذرت

پوست رنده شده یک پرتقال

مقداری نارگیل خشک خرد شده یا پودر قند

دوسه ق غ پسته

طرز تهیه

آب پرتقال ها را کشیده و از آبکش رد کنید تا تمام تفاله ها از آب پرتقال جدا شوند.

آب پرتقالشکر – نشاسته و پوست پرتقال را داخل یک قابلمه ریخته و هم بزنید تا نشاسته کاملن حل شود. می‌توانید در این مرحله مقداری پسته یا گردوی خرد شده هم اضافه کنید که مغزدار شود و یا به صورت ساده درست کنید.

سپس قابلمه را روی حرارت متوسط گذاشته و به آرامی هم بزنید تا آب پرتقال مایع کم کم خودش را گرفته و به صورت فرنی مانند در اید.

اگر میخواهید راحت الحلقوم شما در حد ژله باشد برای 10 دقیقه روی حرارت قرار دهیدتا به غلظت مورد نظر برسد.اگرمایلید تا سفت شود باید بین 20-30 دقیقه روی حرارت باشد تا سفت شود.

وقتی به غلظت مورد نظر رسید. ظرفی که قرار هست مایه راحت الحلقوم در آن ریخته شود با آب مرطوب کنید. من از فنجان و بشقاب گود استفاه کردم.

مایه آماده شده را داخل ظرف مورد نظرتان بریزیدو بگذارید در یک گوشه آشپزخانه بماند تا کاملن خودش را گرفته و سفت شود.

سپس با یک کارد لوکوم را از داخل فنجان یای ظرف گود خارج کرده و برش دهید. روی برش های لوکوم می‌توانید نارگیل خشک خرد شده یا پودر قند بریزید. نوش جان

Hello everyone, my name is Rozina. I am Iranian with Azerbaijani roots. I was raised in Iran but I am living in Scotland. I am passionate about cooking and preparing meals for my family and friends. I tell them the story behind the meal, the pronunciation of their Iranian name and the spices that used in Persian cuisine. I am a photographer, a cooking teacher, and very interested to introduce Persian and Azerbaijani meals, desserts and beverages to people from different cultures, as I love to try food from all over the world. Iranian cuisine is a combination of rice with meat ( chicken, beef, lamb, fish, turkey), nuts, fruits, dried and fresh herbs and vegetables. Iranian food is a celebration of flavor, colour and spices such as: saffron, cinnamon, cardamom, turmeric, dried rose petals, dried limes, cumin, .... I share my recipes in Farsi/English along with step by step photos of preparation. I take all my own pictures. I have learned my traditional Persian and Azerbaijani recipes from my lovely mother, and she has learned from her mother. Over the years, I have experimented and learned more recipes. Some of my recipes are a fusion Western and Middle Eastern cuisine. Some are forgotten from Persian cooking tables and I try with posting and sharing those ones, to preserve them. All my recipes and pictures are property of rozinaspersiankitchen. I would be pleased if you would mention my site if you wish to use any of them. So, if you are interested to know about Persian /Azerbaijani food taste, you can try my website. I will be glad to hear your ideas about my recipes. :) Thank you for visiting my website.
