Karingó is a kind of twisted doughnuts, a simple yet special treat, that offers a true taste adventure for lovers of sweet treats. Flour, fresh yeast, and the perfect amount of milk create the soft yet elastic structure of karingó. When making karingó, the dough is rolled into ropes, which are then twisted to give the entire karingó its desired spiral shape. The doughnuts are placed in hot lard or oil, and fried until crispy and golden brown on the outside, and soft on the inside. Similar to other doughnuts, karingó is served with powdered sugar and fruit jam.

Hungarian cottage cheese

This is what Hungarian túró looks like

You often ask me what kind of cottage cheese (or curd cheese or farmer's cheese - call it what you want) I use in the recipes. In Hungary the store-bought cottage cheese is dry and crumbly as you can see in the picture. So if a recipe calls for túró, I mean this type. If you can't obtain túró, you can try to make your own from whole milk. Click on the link below.

Metric system vs cup

In Hungary metric units are in use, all the recipes on this website are based on this system, so a kitchen scale is necessary. Since I’m not familiar with cup as a measurement unit, I convert grams to cups by using an online converter. The values in brackets, therefore, are only approximate volumes, so, please, double-check them before you start cooking.
