 Romania Food Dishes

A variety of Baltic and Ottoman influences are used by this lesser-known cuisine to produce some genuinely wonderful meals.Here are the most popular Romanian delicacies you must try, whether you're planning a trip there or just want to bring a taste of Romania home.

Ciorba Radauteana (Radauti Soup)

Sour soups, often known as ciorbe, are particularly common in Romania. A delectable, creamy soup from the north called Radauti Soup is named for the place where it was created: Radauti.

Lemon and garlic, which are prevalent in the creamy broth of Ciorba Radauteana, provide the dish's culinary magic.Romanian soups have a wide variety of meat. The ideal meat for Radauti soup is a delicate chicken breast or two thighs.

Vegetables of many varieties can be used. In the Radauti recipe, traditionally, Romanians utilise carrots, celery, parsnips, and onions.

Mici / Mititei (Romanian Meat Rolls)

Mititei, a lovely word in and of itself that means "little ones," have been cooking on grills and open fires in Romania for decades.The massive amount of ingredients used in the making of Mititei is what gives it its explosive flavour.

To begin with, ground beef, lamb, and pork are all combined. Additionally, baking soda (bicarb) is added to the mititei/mici. Once a strong beef basis has been established, the combination is heavily spiced.

The Romanian mititei contains a variety of delicious flavours. These include paprika, coriander, garlic, and thyme.Once the mixture is flavorful, it is rolled into sausage-shaped cylinders and frequently refrigerated to rest the next day. They are then popped without any casing directly onto a grill.

Zacusca (Romanian Vegetable Spread)

Zacusca is a delightful vegetable spread that is quite rich. Throughout Romania, households prepare large quantities of zacusca for storage during the fall harvest.This delicious spread is prepared with roasted eggplant, which serves as a robust base.

The spread is then topped with roasted tomatoes, gogoşari (Romanian bell peppers), and sautéed onions.

Bay leaves are included to provide depth and spice to the spread. Celery and other native veggies, such carrots, are frequently included.A soft, thick-cut piece of bread is the ideal vehicle for zacusca. Families will prepare enough of this traditional dish to last several months through the winter.

Chiftele (Traditional Meatballs)

Another tangible illustration of the Ottoman Empire's impact on Romanian cuisine is chiftele.Instead of the typical sphere, these delectable meatballs are rolled into flattened, rounder cake-like shapes.

Traditionally, chiftele is made of mashed potatoes, minced pig, and different seasonings.Each meatball is fried for a smokey, spicy flavour after being formed, divided, and rolled.

Chiftele are a flavorful Romanian dish best enjoyed with pilaf rice or potatoes. You shouldn't miss it.

Papanasi (Romanian Donuts)

Good things supposedly come in small packages. Papanasi, a delectable delicacy from Romania and Moldova, is proof of that.In essence, papanasi are cheese doughnuts. When they first touch the pan, they are soft dough balls that are then cooked.

The cheese filling in papanasi is what makes them so magical. Commonly used cheeses include delicate soft cheeses like urda. Some people prefer cow's cheese.Papanasi have a distinctive form as well. Instead of being hollowed out like regular doughnuts, a dough spherical is placed on top.

The doughnuts are served covered in sour cream and topped with sour cherry jam, much like fat fried snowmen.Unbelievably delicious, you must taste this, one of the most well-known Romanian desserts.

Tochitura Moldoveneasca 

Tochitura Moldoveneasca is a hearty stew that combines several traditional foods from both Moldova and Romania.In the stew itself, fried beef or pork is covered in a hearty tomato sauce; this dish is frequently offered at nearby eateries.However, the age-old traditional recipe does not call for tomato sauce when cooking.

Instead, a variety of delectable meats and organs, including liver, smoked sausages, and pork fat, are used to make the stew.Fried eggs, a soft piece of sheep cheese, and a generous dollop of everyone's beloved mamaliga are all included in the serving of tochitura moldoveneasca.

This dish has a long history in Romania and is quite popular there. You should try it if you see it at any nearby restaurants.
