Poppy seed potato dumplings – Mákos nudli

by | Dec 15, 2015 | Desserts

Hungarian nudli is a kind of potato dumplings, similar to the Italian gnocchi. It’s made of a light potato dough (it’s actually the same dough used for plum dumplings), which is rolled into ropes and cut into 1,5 inch pieces. It’s very important to cool the potatoes after you have pushed them through a ricer, otherwise you won’t be able to knead the ingredients into a smooth dough. These tiny dumplings can be rolled in toasted breadcrumbs, or, like in this case, they can be coated with sweetened ground poppy seeds.

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.
