In the past, the phrase “Feljössz megnézni a bélyeggyűjteményemet?” (Would you like to come up to my room/flat and check out my stamp collection?) used to be a pick up line, a phrase to politely ask a girl if she would want to join you for the evening and have sex with you in your room. 😛

Hungarian proverbs #45

daily_magyar_2016_05_26
Nem hajt a tatár! [ˈnɛm hɑjt ɑ tɑtaːr] 

Translation:::
The Tartars are not herding us. | The Tartars are not behind us.

Meaning:::
There is no need to hurry!

We use this proverb when somebody is rushing us to do something quickly, or we see that somebody is about to do something quickly, but we know, that there’s no need to make it fast, because it might will not be done very well, or that there is really no rush to do it at the moment. By Tatars in this proverb we do not mean the Mongol tribe, but the medieval Turkic people’s cruel warriors. When they came, you’d better run away. ~ honvedelem.hu

°

tatár [ˈtɑtaːr] – Tartar
tatárjárás [ˈtɑtaːrjaːraːʃ] – he Mongol invasion of Hungary and Eastern Europe in the 13th centur

Molnárkalács

Molnárkalács [ˈmolnaːrkɑlaːtʃ]

molnár – miller
kalács – sweet bread; brioche
sütő – fryer; oven

For baking this Hungarian kalács you need a special Molnárkalács sütő. Here is a recipe for Molnárkalács:::

1 kg flour
1 liter milk
1 vanilla sugar (usually it’s in a 10 g package)
1 egg
very little salt
a little bit more sugar (if needed)
a little oil or butter

Mix these ingrediences as if you were doing Hungarian pancakes. Beat the eggs with some oil, add vanilla sugar and sugar. When it’s beaten enough, add the flour and milk by turns. Some flour, some milk, some flour, some milk, until you have added all. Mix all these together until you have it smooth. Heat up the molnárkalács sütő, grease its inside with a piece of bacon each time. Pour some of the mixture, close the sütő. Wait until it finishes the screaming, turn the sütő, wait a little bit, then open and take out the molnárkalács. 🙂
