Making this dish is the quickest way to enjoy poppy seeds instantly. There’s no kneading, no waiting, just cook some noodles and combine them with ground poppy seeds and sugar (you can replace sugar with honey). Wide strip noodles (szélesmetélt) are used, this kind of pasta looks like the Italian tagliatelle. Poppy seeds need to be ground, a coffee grinder or seed grinder is a necessary equipment in this case.
- 400 g (~14 oz) noodles (wide strip pasta or szélesmetélt)
- 200 g (~7 oz) ground poppy seeds
- 200 g (~7 oz) powdered sugar
- 50 g (~1 3/4 oz) butter
Cook the pasta in salty water until tender. In the meantime combine ground poppy seeds and powdered sugar in a bowl. Drain the noodles. In a pan melt the butter, transfer the noodles into the pan, mix well to coat with butter and fry for 1-2 minutes. Turn off the heat, add the sweetened poppy seeds to the pasta and stir to combine.
