Portakal Peltesi | Orange Curd | Turkish Dessert Recipe

This dessert is quick, easy and elegant, and perfect for when you have unexpected guests. It is also a nice comfort food for an upset stomach.


  • Fresh Orange Juice – 1 cup
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • Water – 1 ¼ cups
  • Sugar – 1 cup
  • Cornstarch – 2 ½ tbsp.
  • Pistachio – 2 tbsp coarsely chopped


In a medium saucepan over medium heat, whisk together the orange juice, zest, water, sugar, and cornstarch.

Whisk constantly for about 8 to 10 minute, or until mixture thickens. Pour curd into 5 or 6 individual serving cups and top with chopped pistachio nuts.

Let cool, then refrigerate for a few hours before serving.
