Khoresht-e Porteghal - Orange Chicken Legs خورش پرتقال

Khoresht-e Porteghal – Orange Chicken Legs خورش پرتقال

Are you also one of those who love oranges? Well, today I have a delicious Persian chicken dish for you. Khoresht-e Porteghal – Orange Chicken Legs خورش پرتقال is a typical dish from the north of Iran. Full of Persian flavors and a delightful combination of chicken and oranges in a Shomali style. In case you want to impress your guests at Christmas, you can also prepare this recipe with duck or goose. For a colorful effect just replace the oranges with blood oranges. It is super easy to prepare, but it should simmer for about 1 hour to ensure tenderness. The meat will fall off the bone. The recipe Khoresht-e Porteghal – Orange Chicken Legs خورش پرتقال is my post for my blog event #Kochenfueriran.

Musicians write songs, artists draw paintings against the injustices in Iran and I would like to be the voice of those who urgently need to be heard with my blog event #Kochenfueriran today. Namely, the voice of my fellow countrymen who have been fighting for democracy, human rights, justice and a free Iran on the streets of Iran for months. Today I invite you to cook or bake a Persian recipe to show our solidarity with the brave women and men of Iran. It can be an appetizer, main dish, dessert or drink, it is entirely up to you. The dish should be typical Iranian or a dish developed by you, but with an Iranian touch. For more visibility, against violence and oppression in Iran and for freedom. Zan Zendeghi Azadi.

Baklava Cheesecake

Baklava Cheesecake

Baklava and cheesecake fans check out, today I have a combination of these two classic desserts in one for you. A lighter version of the sweet and sticky oriental baklava, as well as the refreshing American cheesecake. In short, the best of both! Baklava Cheesecake is a delicious fusion between the East and the West. My family is thrilled with this both creamy and crispy cheesecake. The bottom and outside of the cheesecake are made of a crispy Filo pastry filled with crunchy caramelized nuts, cinnamon, and sugar. On top is a creamy light cheesecake filling made with cream cheese, eggs, Greek yogurt, and vanilla pudding powder. With vanilla and lemon zest, it has a hint of vanilla lemony flavor. The crowning touch is that it is garnished with roughly chopped pistachios and finely chopped rose petals. The recipe is also very simple and in any case, attracts all eyes to it.
