I love this, I only made it once, when it was just my husband and I, and we ate the whole pot! The paprika not only adds flavor, but color, and aroma. Most supermarkets only carry mild paprika, but the flavor can be from mild to pungent and hot, and color from orange red to deep red.Go to an ethnic market for a more flavorful, true Hungarian paprika. You can use beef instead of the veal if you prefer, but the veal is so tender, and just sort of melts in your mouth. If you want a little crunch, toss the noodles with poppy seeds before serving with the veal, add a dollop of sour cream, or dill weed is also great.
