dödölle addendum


We had lunch yesterday with our friends Ildiko and Lorand and I asked about dödölle.  Lorand smiled and said his mother had cooked it for them yesterday.  He explained that the dish began as poverty food after WWII when the best anyone could get in Hungary was potatoes, a little flour and water. Now it is considered a comfort food.  He went on to explain how to make it: boil potatoes in just enough water to cover; when soft, mash them in the cooking water and add salt and just enough flour that it is not too stiff, not too runny; add onion and bacon bits if you have any; fry spoonfuls in very hot oil; serve in a bowl with sour cream.
