Hungarian word of the day: csíra. It means sprouts. When I was a child I remember loving sprouts. Then I sort of forgot about them for 20 or so years, but luckily rediscovering them was just as fun.
And the best thing to hold sprouts onto bread is körözött. Körözött is a spread which is basically paprika, onion, and caraway seed mixed into túró. Túró is… hard to explain. Click the link to read chew.hu’s explanation. It’s often translated as “cottage cheese,” but really it’s more similar to ricotta. Or somewhere between the two, maybe.
Körözött is very, very easy to make. I make a simplified version in my food processor and it takes less than a minute. Chop up a small onion, of half of a large one. Depending on how much you like the taste of onion, you can salt them and leave them for up to half an hour, which will make them less strong. Then just dump them in with the túró (250 g), a bit of salt, and paprika. You can use paprika powder, but if you have Piros Arany (paprika paste), that’s even easier and you don’t need to add extra salt. Pulse it once or twice with the food mixer or mix it up by hand and you’re done. Spread it on bread or crackers, top with some csíra (or not), and enjoy!
