Mouth-watering Hungarian goulash brimming over with chicken, onions and mushrooms. Paprika gives color and adds a spicy bite to the dish. Goulash originated in Hungary, and one of its most important ingredients is paprika which, together with tomatoes, produces a rich, deep red sauce. The best paprika still comes from Hungary, where it is produced in varieties that range from mild to very hot. Caraway seeds are added for texture and to help give the sauce its characteristic flavour. Traditionally, goulash is made with veal or pork, but it is adaptable to most meats, particularly chicken. Serve with baked or mashed potatoes and steamed green vegetables, such as cabbage and green beans.
