Palóc soup

This is truly a Hungarian soup and the most popular in the country. The name Palóc refers to the North-Hungarian subgroup but it does not mean that this meal comes from North-Hungary. The name of it is a commemoration of the famous Hungarian writer Kálmán Mikszáth who was famous for his novels describing the traditions and daily routine of this subgroup.

This list would not be complete without mentioning the traditional Hungarian chicken soup which is the best with home-made grits noodles. Here is the recipe from Sokszínűvidék:

Home-made grits noodles – Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 4 spoons of oil
  • Salt
  • Grits


Stir the eggs, oil, and salt until it becomes frothy. Add the grits while stirring until it becomes thick – same consistency when making pancakes. After this, put it into the fridge until you cook the soup. Finally, jag it into the warm soup using a wet spoon.
