Paprikás kattancs

by | Jun 2, 2023 | Breads, buns & biscuits

Paprikás kattancs is a folded milk loaf, which is spread with oil and sprinkled with salt and paprika. It was a gastronomic speciality of peasant society in Gúta, a small Hungarian inhabited settlement in Slovakia, near the Hungarian border. Kattancs used to be eaten with soups, especially bean soup, and mainly on Saturdays. The 200 year-old recipe of kattancs was brought to Békés county after World War II, during the Czechoslovak–Hungarian population exchange, when farming families from Gúta were forcibly transferred to South-Eastern Hungary.

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.
