There is a very special dish I love which was made by my grandma and then my mom. As my mother is in a hospital fortunately my sister knows how to make it and having enough potatoes she prepared this special noodles (kluski). It is not so well knows dish and I have to say I have never seen anyone making it (except in our family). As it was made by my grandma we called it with her name – hence Kluski Babci Emilki.
What you need for this dish are:
FILLING: potatoes, onion, salt and pepper
DOUGH: flour, egg, water and oil
You start with filling.
First you rasp potatoes and onion on a rasper and mix it in a bowl – add salt and pepper for better taste. After all is grated you have to squeeze a moisture from a pulp so they will not be so wet.
Then you put it into a frying pan and fry it untill the water is gone and it is a little cooked. The potatoes water which was standing for a while you pour through the strainer and you add the rest of a potatoes pulp with a potato flour to the frying pan as well.
The filling is ready for further processing.
Next you make dough from flour, egg, water and oil. You roll it flat and cut in strips.
You put the potatoes filling on each stripe and close it.
When all stripes are cut in single noodles you start to cook it with a hot water with a little bit of salt and oil – so the noodles will not stick to each other).
And the Noodles of the grandma Emilka are ready!
You may eat them plain, you may add a little bit of oil or you may fry them on the frying pan with a little bit of butter and dry roll – it is delicious!
That was delicious! I could it all of them at once 🙂 I have to try to make it at home when I am back.
Afternoon a new bed was delivered for my mom. She will come on Wednesday from the hospital – at least this is a plan.
It could be a nice quilt project to make a bedspreads … I have to think about it 🙂
