Hungarian Cottage Cheese Dip - Körözött
Recipe type: Appetizer or Snack
Cuisine: Hungarian
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2-4
  • 1 cup cottage cheese*
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • ½ scallion, finely chopped (you can also use purple onion)
  • 2 tablespoons yoghurt*
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • caraway seeds, to taste
  • freshly ground pepper, to taste
  1. Mix all ingredients in a medium/small bowl and serve with bread, crackers or, in the Hungarian fashion, with fresh cucumber and bell peppers.
1. I used grass fed 4% cottage cheese. If you can find good quality farmer's cheese (it is a white cheese with curds) use that instead!
2. I used sheep's milk yoghurt, which gives it a creamy, sour touch. You can use cow's milk yoghurt, kefir or sour cream.

OPTIONAL: you can forgo the scallion and caraway seeds and double up on the garlic for my mother-in-law's version. It's a delicious, spicier alternative!
