Many people know and prepare chicken paprikash in many different ways, although it is usually eaten with dumplings. A few years ago, on the Ides of March, our friends with small children came to visit us, and according to the national day, we served the chicken paprikash not with dumplings, but with colored pasta, so that it was shaped like a cockade on the plate and showed off the Hungarian colors. That’s how we made the food a little unique and the national day special, where there was no shortage of smudged children and good cheer!!
By the way chicken paprikash is one of the most popular Hungarian dishes, and contains the main typical ingredients of Hungarian cuisine: meat, onion, red pepper, sour cream. Ground down, it is the stuffing of another delicious national food, the Hortobágy-style pancake.
