Lokoms from my kitchen !!!!
Eating Lokoms in the occasion of our prophit Mohammad's birth day,, is a habit and a way to celebrate the day ,, every year we use to buy lokoms but this year, I decided to make it ,it turned out very delicious 100 times better than what we used to eat it...
This time I flavored it with orange and lemon but next time I will try the original taste the one with nuts and flavored with rose water.
Here you are my wonderful recipe
one lemon zest
one orange zest
1/4 cup orange juice
2TB lemon juice
3 cups of sugar
1/2 cup of water
2/3 cup of corn starch
3 or 4 of flavor or rose water
1/2 of confectionary sugar for dusting
I put in a medium pan the sugar+water+zests+juice ,,all on a medium heat untill the sugar dissolved .
Leave it to boil for 5 mn untill it reaches the thread point "I used candies thermometer"and do not stir it at all..
Mix the gelatin in 1/2 cup of water and dissolve it on bainmarie, also dissolve the starch in another 1/2 cup of water,,, put both the gelatin and starch mix in the sugas syrup over a medium heat and stir it till it reaches the boiling point put you flavor and food color.
pour it in a mould 17 cm with high bords and covered with foil.
Put it in the fridge till next day , start cutting it after dusting your table with sugar.
Try it , I am sure you will like it!!!
