Dödölle, ganca, gánica, cinke – all these names refer to one dish that is known and cooked throughout Hungary, a cheap peasant food that was eaten on a daily basis a long time ago....
This is what Hungarian cottage cheese looks like
You often ask me what kind of cottage cheese 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.
