Microwave Turkish Delight- a soft and scented delicacy...

This is a traditional sweet of middle east. I tasted this for the first time at K.C Das and I got attracted to the light pink coloured fragrant square cubes, that I wanted to see how it tastes. They are so delicate, light and scented with rose water.

Ever since I tasted this, I wanted to try this out and was searching for cream of tartar. This cream of tartar is an acid, which ensures that the baked goods are well rised. At last I got it and then I was waiting for an occasion to make this (just an excuse to try something sweet).
I wanted to try this on my husband’s birthday, but I made this two days before his birthday. He too loves this a lot and this sweet is the first choice when he wants to buy sweets for his friend because of its amazing flavors. It was a big surprise for him, when I showed him the prepared sweet. He never expected me to make this as I used to say that to make this is a big process. But this is not at all difficult. I made this in microwave. You can also make this on stove top.
I googled and got so many versions of this turkish delight and I ended up with this. This is an amazing dessert to gift someone and will be loved by all.
