Paprikash Lena

Updated: Mar 11

  • Paprikash that you will often make, enriched and very tasty according to my recipe. Everyone in the family is crazy about it! It's not because it is my recipe, it is really delicious, rich of vitamins and ingredients give a very good taste. Try it, you will need time about 1 h 40 min. Follow recipe.

Ingredients: medium, total time: 1h 40 min, 6 servings
  • 2 kg of chicken/ drumsticks and thigh

  • 3 onions/ finely chopped

  • 2 carrots/chopped into rings

  • 1 parsnip/ chopped into rings

  • 1 fresh red pepper/ diced

  • 1/4 celery root/finely chopped

  • stalks of 1 celery/ finely chopped

  • 3–4 potatoes medium/ diced

  • celery leaf/ finely chopped

  • 2 teaspoons salt (to taste)

  • 1 teaspoon pepper

  • 4 teaspoons sweet ground red pepper

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground hot pepper to taste

  • 1 Tablespoon fat

  • 1 deep pot

  • water as needed

  1. Finely chop the onion and fry it in fat. Fry it over low heat, being careful not to burn it, stirring occasionally, and reducing the heat. When the onion softens and turns yellow, add the drumsticks and other meat.

  2. Add salt and pepper, chopped carrot, celery stalk, paprika, and parsnip.

  3. After 15 minutes, add the ground paprika and enough water to cover the flesh of two fingers to be above (2 cm).

  4. It is better to pour a little more water at the beginning, it will certainly evaporate, than to burn your meat. To prevent the meat from falling apart, it is best to cook with more water, covered over low heat without stirring.

  5. Cook for about 1 hour. If you see that the paprika is very hot, make sure that the liquid does not evaporate completely and that the paprika does not burn, add water if necessary. Peel potatoes, grate it and cut it into cubes. Put the potatoes in the stew 30 minutes before the end.

  6. The amount of liquid also depends on whether you like to eat the paprika with a spoon or a fork.

  7. Depending on your taste, you can also make a steeper stew, and immediately cook noodles or dumplings in it.

  8. I personally cook with homemade dumplings.

For these dumplings, you need to beat:

  1. Stir well 1 egg, little salt, pepper, and flour so that the dough is not too hard. The dough must be more to be gooey. Then take out the molds with a wet fork, insert and wait for about 5 minutes before the end of the stew.

  2. In that case, take care the stew does not stand for long so that the dough does not absorb all the soft. And when you have turned off the hob, add the parsley and celery leaves. Serve warm.

  3. That variant makes sense if you know you’re going to spend it all right away. Buon appetito!

NOTE: Serve cooked stew with cooked pasta, potatoes, or side dish as desired. You can also use chicken wings with drumsticks, or just small drumsticks, as you prefer.
