Chilli chicken goulash

There are so many different goulash recipes and it’s hard to find the perfect one, the one that will stick out. I visited Hungary many times, and Budapest is one of my favourite cities. Not only that it has a rich history, but going there you are embarking on a fascinating culinary adventure. Goulash is probably one of the most famous Hungarian dishes, and I’m happy that I got the chance to try it there in a number of traditional restaurants. Their goulash is rich in flavour, spicy and hot mostly served in a bread bowl and I recommend trying it the first time you visit Budapest or any other city in Hungary because you won’t be disappointed. All about my last trip to Budapest you can find here .

This is a recipe I stumbled upon in one of the cookbooks I found in my flat. Of course it has a personal touch because I always like to adjust flavours when cooking. The first time I prepared this goulash, I was sceptical a bit but loved the idea of so many different vegetables I was cooking with. The result blew my mind, so the first chance I got I prepared it for my family since I wanted to share this amazing dish and they were surprised how tasty it was. Since then this is one of my favourite goulash recipes and hope you’ll give it a shot as well!

  2. Would love to go to Budapest – definitely on my list. Goulash looks great – we’re well into autumn here in New Zealand now so exactly the sort of dishes I feel like cooking.
