Potato léngos (traditional Hungarian food) with walnut for fasting. Do it like this. Boil some water, then let it cool. If you're making it for one table only, break some white bread, and let it soak. Make the dough in clean, warm water with salt. Clean the walnut and crush it in a mortar, take out the bread, crush it with the walnuts, once the water is cool, pour it onto the walnut, crush it with a mortar, pass through a strainer it onto the same pot, cook the dough, but if you can't, do this. Make a ring, put the dough onto it, cook it on this. Take off the raw dough from the sides. Put the raw dough on top of each other, warm some walnut milk, add some salt, break the potato léngos in the plate, add some walnut milk and oil, then serve it.
