Photo of the Week: Lecsó

2011-07-24 18.16.14

Last week one of my Hungarian friends invited me to her flat to make some Hungarian food. We made lecsó with egg and served with bread. Traditionally, lecsó is made without the egg, but we added it for extra flavour, and there are many variations. We made it with onion, paprika, tomato and a number of spices including paprika and goulash pastes, before adding in eggs. For someone that doesn’t really like onions, I found this dish to be really good. The onions were sweet which mixed well everything else.

Time to get me some paprika and goulash paste so I can make this myself!
