    Hi

    Chicken Paprikas (Csirkepaprikas)
    Serves 4-6

    Prep: 15min
    Cook: 1hr

    This is a Hungarian dish, there are a few ways to make it this is my grandmothers version.

    1 large onion finely diced or grated
    2 cloves of garlic finely chopped or grated/crushed
    2 cups of water
    1.5 teaspoons of flour
    1.5 teaspoons of Hungarian sweet paprika (use normal version if you don't have it)
    salt and pepper
    3 tablespoons of sour cream
    1 whole chicken cut up into 8 pieces (I used 5 large drumsticks)
    1 tablespoon olive oil

    nokedli (noodle pasta)

    2 teaspoon chicken stock (dried)
    1 cup water
    2 eggs beaten
    salt and pepper (black and white)
    2 2/3 cup plain flour

    Directions:

    1. Prepare all ingredients
    2. Heat a pot and put in the olive oil then gently fry onions for a 4-6 minutes until translucent
    3. Add in garlic and gently fry for 1min (dont brown it)
    4. Add in paprika and mix well, fry for 20secs
    5. Add in about 1/3 cup of the water and mix well, add in salt and pepper, cook for 30sec then place chicken in and mix well.

    nokedli

    You need something flat like a saucepan or colander that has holes about 6-10mm wide. If you don't have it then watch this video at the 3:40mark for another way to do it.

    1. Prepare a largish (3-4L) pot of boiling salted water

    3. Add in about 1/3 flour and whisk well, then the next 1/3 etc.. till its all done

    Enjoy !!

    NOTE: In the video the noodles mixture is a bit too thick the method I list will be a bit easier as its thinner

    Quite possibly my favourite of all Hungarian dishes. Short of, perhaps, Hortobagyi Palacsinta.

    Will give this version a go, looks very good!

    My Grandmother (Hungarian) makes awesome chicken paprikas...

    looks like you have got a good version going there yourself..

    just needs a big plate of langos to sop up the left over juices with.. and some uborkasalata on the side to clear the palate a little.

    A few bottles of bikaver to go with the meal and some palinka to finish..

    Oh shit yeah...

    I've never tried chicken stock in my nokedli so I'll have to give it a shot.

    Anyone know where I can get a decent nokedli maker in Aus? (pref melb)

    Mine was a cheap hand me down thats starting to get a bit rusty :(
