Krumpli- or Potato Főzelék
I had a comment the other day asking for more Hungarian recipes – I promised I’ll do my best, so here we go! Krumplifőzelék, or potato főzelék if I really want to translate it. Főzelék is kind of a thick soup, normally consumed with some extra on top: I fried some sausages this time to serve with this potato version. Really easy, tasty and absolutely satisfying, my Mr loved it too.
3-4 bigger potatoes
1-2 bay leaves
salt, vegeta (veggie spice mix)
150g (~0.6 cup) sour cream or natural yoghurt
2 tsp white flour
1 tsp paprika
1. Cube the potatoes and cook with the bay leaves and spices until tender.
2. Mix the sour cream/yoghurt with the flour and paprika
3. Remove the potatoes from the cooking water, take about 1 cup of the liquid and mix it well with the sour cream mix. Add the potatoes to this “batter”, stir and bring to a boil once more – if you find it too thick, add a bit more of the saved cooking water.
Serve with some sausages if you like (and/or home-made milky bread swirls yum)! Enjoy
