04 Jan I love Coxinhas
WHO IN THE WORLD DOES NOT LOVE COXINHAS?????
DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS???
NO??? YES???? IF THE ANSWER IS NO, YOU MUST FIND OUT!!!
It is a Brazilian specialty made of fried dough and chicken… Yummy! it is just so good… my mouth is watering now!!! The name means little thigh, as the shape of it is supposed to remind of a little thigh… only Brazilians can look at this and imagine a little thigh… check out below…
Have you been to a Brazilian kids party??? They are the event of the year, so exquisite and sophisticated they can be…this is a topic for another post, but coxinhas along side with pão de queijo are the most popular delicacies… You can also find coxinhas anywhere, they are that kind of delicacy you eat when you need a snack, or as a starter of a meal…
Recently reading a blog specialized in food, I found this amazing post dedicated to coxinhas, which I recommend you read in the following link: http://infinitebelly.com/2015/11/23/brazilian-coxinhas-recipe
The author, André, has got the spirit of it and how you can find it anywhere and eat it in any occasion. The recipe seems good, although I have not tried to do it myself… my cooking skills will be subject to at least 10 other posts, so poor they are….
Nigella Lawson, a very famous English Cook, has also published the recipe in her website: http://www.nigella.com/recipes/view/coxinha
Now, let me know if you have tried it and what do you think of it… and if you have never tried, run to the next Brazilian cafe, if you are as bad as me in the kitchen and for those who are skilled, try to make it and let me know….
