Hungarian Egg Drop Soup With Potato Dumplings
Hungarian egg drop soup is a very simple, tasty and nourishing starter. It is done in 10 minutes, you can serve it with potato dumplings seasond with smoked bacon to make it more filling. If you are looking for a cheap, quick and delicious recipe, try this Hungarian soup.
The original recipe is without the dumplings, but believe me, it is a great addition, the soup is more satisfying and really warms you up on cooler days.
Also, the dumplings are easy and quick to make, you need only a few ingredients.
Hungarian egg drop soup should not be confused with caraway seed soup which is very similar but cooked without eggs.
You will also need some good quality sweet paprika powder which gives it a nice flavor and color. Be careful, do not burn the paprika or ot becomes bitter. Some recipes call for vinegar, I prefer making this soup without it.
You will need ground caraway seed which is really easy to purchase in Hungary but can be quite challenging for you. You can use a mortar or a spice grinder. The Secura Electric Coffee and Spice Grinder at Amazon is easily available for anyone, you can even grind your own coffee and different spices.
