Haluški

Haluški: basic traditional dish of the Servika Roma. The dough is prepared from grated raw potatoes thickened with flour. Small pieces or thin strips of the dough are cut off or torn off and thrown into boiling water. When cooked, they are strained and combined – depending upon taste and the momentary financial situation – with either cooked sauerkraut, boiled cabbage or cottage cheese. Brynza (sheep cheese) was not commonly used in the Roma community. Haluški with brynza is a typical Slovak dish. The kind of fat poured over it depends on taste and availability at home.
