Copilaria intr-o farfurie: Colarezi (Childhood in a bowl: Colarezi)

Cand eram copil imi doream cu ardoare sa cresc mare. Sa nu-mi mai spuna mama ce sa fac, sa pot merge unde vreau, sa-mi cumpar tot ce-mi place. Uite ca am ajuns si aici. Dar acum, bineinteles, imi doresc sa mai fiu copil! Ce ti-e si cu oamenii astia, nu stiu ce vor.
Cand ma apuca amocul asa dupa zilele de mult trecute, mainile mele creeaza o mancare a copilariei. Astazi am facut Colarezi. Asa se numeste desertul acesta in zona noastra (Muntenia). Prin alte zone ale tarii se mai numesc frecatei sau razalai.
Colarezi e un desert simplu, chiar foarte simplu. Ingredientele sunt putine: faina, lapte, zahar si vanilie. Dar ce combinatie minunata iese.

 Colarezi

Ingrediente

  • 1l lapte
  • 3/4 cana de faina
  • 10 linguri de apa
  • 6 linguri de zahar
  • un praf mic de sare
  • 1 lingura esenta de vanilie

Mod de pregatire

  • Amesteca laptele cu zaharul, sarea si pune-l la fiert
  • Pune faina intr-un castron si amestec-o cu apa cu mana. Freaca Coca formata intre degete si formeaza bucatele de coca.

 

  • Poti pune mai multa sau mai putina apa, in functie de cat de mari vrei sa fie bucatile de coca
  • Cand laptele clocoteste, pune in el bucatile de coca, amesteca si lasa la fiert cam 10 minute.
  • Pune esenta de vanilie si lasa putin la racit.
  • Se mananca cald

 

English version:
When I was a child I passionately wanted to grow up. So  I don’t have to do what my mother tell me to do, I can go where I want to and buy whatever I like. But now, of course, I wish I be a kid again! OMG  these people do not know what they want.

When I feel blue like this, my hands have to create a childhood food. Today I cooked COLAREZI (ko-la-rae-dzee). It is a Romanian dessert loved by children. It is simple, very simple. It contains few ingredients: flour, milk, sugar and vanilla. But what comes out is a wonderful combination.

Ingredients

* 1l milk
* 3 / 4 cup flour
* 10 tablespoons water
* 6 tablespoons sugar
* a small pinch of salt
* 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

How To

* Mix the milk with sugar, salt and put it to boil
* Put the flour into a bowl and mix it with water by hand. Rub between fingers and form pieces of dough.
* You can put more or less water, depending on how big you want to be pieces of dough
* When the milk boils, put the pieces of dough in it, stir and let boil for about 10 minutes.
* Put a little vanilla and let cool.
* Eat hot

    That certainly looks like great nursery food, no matter how old you are! Warm and comforting. We all could use a little of that now and then.

    I’d never heard of making these little flour noodles in milk, only broth. A lid’s delight!
