Dairy dish with black pepper. We, Hungarians do it like this. Pour water onto the flour, stir it, then pass through a strainer it. They make so much of this food for fasting, that valuable noble people carry it by bags. When you want to cook it, have some clean, hot water on the fire, stir it with a spoon, cook it with oil or butter, just like the porridge. if you'd like to make the dough for milk, knead it with milk and eggs, then let it dry in the warm weather, for they do this only in summer, not winter, for they make so much on summer that they will still have some for winter. You can cook this in beef water, too.
