lion47 Scrumptious , meat sauce from left over , boiled or baked chicken . This is a very old traditional recipe , from frugal culinary delights in Jewish household ,in Transylvania. All you need is ; 3 cups of finely chopped boiled or backed chicken , 1/4 cup canola oil ,3 flat table spoons of flour, 2garlic cloves , 2 table spoons sweet paprika, 1/2 a tea spoon white pepper , 1 tea spoon of cardamon ,and curry . The last 2 is my addition . It gives a depth of flavor . Sauté the chopped garlic , combine with flour and spices and the chicken . Cover with chicken stock . Bring to boil , reduce heat simmer for 20 minutes or till it thickens . Serve piping hot with your favorite bread . I like to serve it , in small ceramic dishes covered with puff pastry sprinkled with caraway seeds ,than baked for 20 minutes . It's a delis starter . Served with green salad . 2mon

lion47 Jewish comfort food is a delight.In this case it's false fish broth ! It is a a recipe perfected by house wives working on a tight budget . Against popular belief ,that all Jews are rich . Before the Second World War , most of the Jewish population of Europe were conservative and religious had large extended families , they were poor as church mouse . Their unique cooking style was developed throughout the ages , giving nourishing healthy food on a budget . This is just 1 example of the many to come . I dearly wish I 'll be able to save those recipes for posterity , for it incorporates the essence and love of nurturing of Jewish families . The recipe for ' false fish broth ' ; 1/2 kilogram chicken mince , 7 carrots , 1/2 kilogram potatoes , 3 celery stalks , 2 onions , 1 parsnip , 1/2 cup parsley , 1/2 of fresh dill . 2 bay leaves , 2 flat table spoons salt , 1 of sweet paprika , 1/2 of white pepper , 1 of cardamon this is my addition it's optional . 4 table spoons of crushes oats , 3 table spoons bread crumbs , 1 egg ,1/4 cup canola oil . Clean and dice vegetables . Put 2 carrots and onion aside . Tie the greens with a string and place in a large saucepan with the diced vegetables . Combine with spices and cover with water . Bring to boil , than lower the heat to a simmer . Place in the mince grated carrots, onion , oil , bread crumbs , egg ,1 tea spoon salt , 1/2 tea spoon pepper . Mix well . Wet your palms , for small balls and add to the boiling vegetables . Cook slowly 1 and 1/2 hours . Adjust the taste . Serves 8 . In summer you eat it cold , in winter piping hot , usually accompanied with beetroot and horse radish relish . Bon appetite ! One can use minced carp . It's great . 2mon
