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.
- 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
- Ground black pepper
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.
