Turkish Delight, unlike many dessert dishes, does not involve an elaborate cooking ritual. Also its ingredients are readily available.

You only need cornstarch, powdered sugar, powdered gelatin and a filling of your choice like orange peel or walnut or hazelnut paste. Then you mix in all the ingredients with water and let it set for a day. After the mixture is well set, you cut it into pieces, sprinkle sugar over them and your Turkish Delight is ready to be savored.

Whoever said that "all great works of art are simple", was right.
