Onion-cottage cheese dumplings from Neszmély

by | Dec 11, 2018 | Noodles

This pasta recipe comes from Neszmély, a village in Komárom-Esztergom county, which is the centre of the Neszmély wine region and can be found 70 kilometres from Budapest.

These noodles are a kind of nokedli, but instead of a plain flour batter, they are made with cottage cheese. The dumplings are layered or mixed up (as you like it) with fried bacon pieces and sautéed onions, topped with sour cream and grated cheese, and baked in the oven until cheese melts and turns golden brown.

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.
