Rosół z kluskami lanymi

Rosół with Drop Noodles is a special homemade soup in many Polish families. It reminds our Grandmas and childhood. One of the readers on facebook said: “First soup and noodle making lesson I had, standing on a stool, at the stove with my babciu”. Thank you DaMo!

  1. When my mom made lane kluski she just used eggs and flour and salt of course. She put the ingredients in a cup (not all the flour) and just beat it with a fork. She would add more flour once what she was mixing was incorporated. She said as you mix, the batter will loosen up and eventually get to the consistency you want! Never adding water. Then she would slowly pour it directly in the soup. Mom liked when I was around to help at this stage because I was able to stir the soup as she poured! I loved when it was thick, almost porridge-like but the kluski was still separate little pieces…not mushy!
    I make it on occasion and my sisters love it! They say “just like mom’s!” It makes me feel so good!

      1. the best are boletus mushrooms. In poland we collect them in Autumn and dry them for the rest of the year. They are commonly used eg. for Christmas Eve dishes.

    1. I do the same, just cook the egg mixture right in the chicken broth. Also I have taken to use cilantro rather than parsley, I find it gives a better flavour.

  2. My grandma cooked in a restaurant in our small town. When she made her famous “chicken crumble” soup (her fancy name) people would come from all over the county to eat. Huge hit for the restaurant.

        1. Purchase whole allspice at the supermarket. They’re little balls (or berries or seeds, whatever word you want to use). Use 4 of them 🙂
