This meal is a must, especially when you are spending your holiday or free-time at Lake Balaton in the summers.

Cook approximately 15-20 dkg’s of potatoes with their peel on them. After they are cooked smash and mix them with 1 dkg of yeast while adding some salt until you get the perfect dough. After it is ready, make small sized dumplings with some flour. Rest these dumplings for 1.5 hours. The last steps are to roll them out into small roundels and bake them in warm oil. When they are ready, you can put some sour cream, cheese or onions on them.

The first step of making noodles is the same as making lángos. After you got the dough with potatoes, shape it into long rods and cut them up into pieces as long as your forefinger. Cook them in hot water and when they are ready, roll them in breadcrumbs. You can eat noodle with jam, sugar, poppy seed and grits.
