How to Make Haluski (Fried Cabbage and Noodles)

by Cynthia Au

Start to Finish: 45 minutes

Servings: 4

Difficulty Level: Beginner

Originating from Eastern Europe, haluski is a mix of pan-fried egg noodles and cabbage. The dish is mildly seasoned but, like much traditional Eastern European cuisine, it’s filling, warming and easy to make. While this dish -- the following recipe is adapted from one published in the Wall Street Journal -- can keep in the fridge for several days and be eaten reheated, it is best when consumed straight after making. Otherwise, the noodles can become soggy.

Ingredients

  • 8 cups green cabbage, shredded
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 large white onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup carrot, grated
  • 1/3 cup butter, non-salted
  • 1 pound egg noodles, dried
  • 1/2 teaspoon Hungarian paprika, optional
  • Salt
  • Ground black pepper

Directions

Variations

This dish can be made with red cabbage as well, but it is unconventional. The cabbage will color the noodles purple, which some people may find off-putting.

You can make your own egg noodles if you like, although this is not recommended for beginners, as the process is tricky and time-consuming.
