This is a goat/sheep cheese dish and is wonderful with pita, crusty bread, tomatoes, red peppers etc. in the hot hot months of the year. Easy cocktail party appetizer also . It makes a wonderful filling for cherry tomatoes and peppers and celery sticks. So easy to make and can be made a few days ahead to allow the tastes to mingle.
1 tbls caraway seeds
2 green onions
200 grams sheep cheese ( best if you can get it in a tube that has been creamed slightly)
100 grams of goat feta ( you can use regular cottage cheese also see below)
1/2 tbls of Hungarian paprika powder
I also used around 50 grams of butter ( you can also use margerine )
I like Lurpak as it is calorie reduced and softens very quickly so it is easy to use. it has a wonderful taste even on plain fresh bread.
1/2 of a small onion shredded ,this is just to give it more of a taste but is not necessary if your green onions are very fresh .
For many years while I was living in Toronto I could not find the goat or sheep cheese that felt right for this recipe , then I found out that many Hungarians use cows cottage cheese either creamed or plain. You can use that also just you will have to add 1 TBLS of French's mustard. This will give it the bite that you normally would get with the fetas.
OK so lets start, there is no right or wrong way to do this .....just mix everything together .
Add the sheep cheese from the tube and the goat cheese and mix them .
It will look like this .
You can also add hot paprika at this time around 1/3 tbls if you want this to be spicy.
I use a cheese grater to grate onions I find this much easier. If you add an onion do not add a sweet onion it will change the taste of this .
OK now it is done and should look like this with the bits of feta and the caraway seeds showing a bit .
The paprika adds the color but my camera does not show the richness of the paprika. I have sprinkled the top with a bit more paprika and now this will be refrigerated until it is time to eat!
Now all you have to do is spread this on bread or a pita, stuff a tomato or a red pepper and you have a great simple snack or meal on a very hot day.
Over the years when a new visitor comes to Hungary and visits us I will always have korozott in a bowl on the table together with a kolbasz ( hungarian sausage) and of the old favorite...the ice cold Kosher Szilva Palinka. The PLUM Palinka!
After long trip to get to Hungary what better way to say WELCOME!
This is a A True Taste of Hungary.
