Now say, "What are Spätzle?"
The answer is not that simple, because when the Swabian speaks of his spitzle, it can either be his beloved wife, his child or grandchild. However, when he speaks of his spitters, it is certainly the delicious, yellow things that are fragrant in his plate waiting to be eaten by him to the fullest. For a long time, the ladies do not have to wait, because no Swabian can resist this yellow temptation.
The short answer would be: dough scraped in small pieces into boiling water, sipped with the spatula or planed with the Knöhlelpfloor and taken out again immediately, these are spaghetti.
And now it's already getting complicated. "Send yet koine Spaltzla" (These are not spätzle) would sway some Schwabe, if they are not uniformly very long and very thin, almost spaghetti. For the others, it is only spatters if they were scraped unevenly from the board. But the Bavarian Swabian wants his Spatza (Spätzle) round and short, as it comes from the Späta plane or as the Allgäu says, Spatzenhobel. Some just say spaspers. He does not want the long dormant room. But these are not Spätzle, they are knocks.
Then again, he does not quite agree, because the Badener says to his spice also Knoumlpfli, but they must nevertheless either come out of the press for a long time or in a row, or be scraped by hand, k & ouml; But they can also be made with the slicer, but then they have to have small pimples at the bottom, so that they can be used again.
Alright? Do not worry, it gets even more complicated when you go to Switzerland, because they do not call you Knöhlle or Spleetlezle, but Chnumpfli, then you're more likely to be around again. Or in Austria, from the Knoblauchhaus in Vorarlberg (very small and round, the smaller the better made with the Spätzlehobel) in Graz and Vienna, there are Nockerln, who must then be big, very big ; his. Sometimes you will be thrown into the boiling water with a small spoon in turn.
You notice that is not easy with the spätzle. But that was just the form, the dough, the confusion is even greater.
But do not worry: First, you can use our story wonder to create just about any ornamental or ornamental form. Second, no matter what shape your charms have, they will always be tasty.
In short, what spätzle are not: Spätzle are by no means any dried pieces of dough, which are offered in Spätlieformform in more or less colorful plastic bags for sale. Also, little in common with freshly cut labels have various deep-frozen products.
