On the eighth day we reached Hungary. I must tell a big thanks to Valli for this theme. While searching for recipes from different countries. Not only finding a recipe we get a lot of knowledge about the country, culture and cuisine. For the first time I came to know that Hungarians also known as Magyars Interesting!!. Hungarian cuisine is a traditional cuisine which is developed by Magyar people with the seasonal vegetables, meat, fruits bread and dairy products. They have soups, main courses with stews and breads, sausages and sweets and cakes.
To day my recipe from Hungary is a Hungarian bread recipe which is a fried bread. Well known as Langos, is a break fast bread, before this used to bake in front of the brick oven like Indian batti oven how interesting is n't it !!!. Usually this bread was made at home or brought from street vendors. so that slowly this is became very popular as a street food. This Hungarian deep fried bread is usually served with garlic just rub the garlic on it and serve or grated cheese or sausages, omelet or with cinnamon sugar or jam. I enjoyed it with garlic water. Crush garlic and add it to water mix well sprinkle this garlic water along with garlic pieces on the bread and enjoy with a cup of coffee or hot chocolate..
