Ingredients:

  • 300 g ricotta cheese (izvarka) or white crushed cheese
  • 1 head garlic
  • 2 pickled peppers
  • oil and salt as needed
  • 2 tablespoons of flour
  • 400 ml warm water
  • 1 tomato chopped in pieces or tomato paste
  • parsley, bukovska pepper

 Preparation:

  1. First finely chop several cloves of garlic, the peppers too and fry together until garlic becomes well fried.
  2. Add the ricotta, continue the frying. If the ricotta is not salty, add a little salt.
  3. Make a little space in the pan and pour oil in that space and fry the flour there, then mix everything. Gradually and slowly pour hot water and mix constantly, and water is applied as long as there is a need to obtain pulp of desired density. 
  4. The rest of the garlic is cut into small slices and mixed in the kasha and left to boil for another 10-15 minutes. If necessary, add some more salt. If you aren’t very fond of garlic, then don’t add it now.
