"4 tablespoons quality imported sweet Hungarian paprika (yes, that's TABLEspoons!) I'm doing a tablespoons use your own judgement Serve with Spätzle (in Hungary they are shorter and stubbier, so prepare the dough accordingly or just use whatever method/shape you prefer - the texture and flavor of the dough is the same regardless). Or serve with boiled potatoes or wide egg noodles. Libby made her own wide egg noodles or boiled potato But she was Czech and she used a strong hand with the caraway seeds she had a shaker that had ground caraway seeds .A side salad, particularly a cucumber salad, is traditional. If desired, serve with a dollop of sour cream."
