Eggy dumplings – Tojásos nokedli

by | Aug 22, 2014 | Noodles

Here in Hungary we have some “national” dishes, which make us sentimental when we think of them, but foreigners usually react with raised eyebrows if we mention these dishes to them. One of these meals is eggy dumplings or tojásos nokedli in Hungarian, a kind of noodles fried with beaten eggs. Now you may think that we are completely insane because we have combined gnocchi with scrambled eggs. But believe me, despite the fact that it seems strange at first sight, if you taste it, it will provide a delicious, must-have-again experience.

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.
