Liver noodles – Májas nokedli

by | Sep 29, 2023 | Noodles

Liver noodles (májas nokedli) represent a delightful fusion of traditional flavours. This comforting dish is actually a kind of nokedli, a Hungarian dumpling reminiscent of spaetzle. The nokedli batter, typically a mixture of flour, eggs, and water, is pushed through a nokedli maker into simmering water, creating small, irregularly shaped noodles that boast a tender texture. However, what sets this dish apart is the addition of chopped chicken livers to the nokedli batter. The infusion of liver imparts a rich, savory depth to the noodles.

Beyond the delicious taste and unique texture, the inclusion of chicken liver in this pasta dish also offers several health benefits. Chicken liver is a nutritional powerhouse, packed with essential nutrients such as vitamin A, iron, and vitamin B12. Incorporating chicken liver into your diet, as done in this Hungarian recipe, is a flavorful way to enjoy these nutritional benefits while savoring a delightful, comforting meal.

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.
