Körözött - Hungarian Cheese Spread

Last night’s table was laid with various different - homemade - dips.

Clockwise from top left : hummus, Chive Spread, Wasabi Pearl, Truffle Pearl, Baba Ghanoush, Körözött..

The last one ‘Körözött’ is a Hungarian Cheese Spread .

‘The main ingredient of Körözött was originally Liptauer or liptói túró, a sheep-milk based cheese. Liptó was a county of Hungary until the end of WWI. Liptó got disannexed from Hungary in 1919, and now it’s part of Slovakia. Though we lost Liptó, we never stopped eating Körözött’ .

I made this with Jersey Curd & Natural Live Yoghurt . You can find various recipes online or the way we like it:


  • 250 g (~1 cup) Jersey Curd

  • 1 middle red onion, finely chopped

  • 1 tsp. ground Hungarian paprika

  • 1/2 tsp. ground caraway seeds

  • 1/2 tsp. salt

  • a pinch of freshly ground black pepper

  • 80 g (~1/3 cup) butter

  • 1 heaping tbsp Natural Live Yoghurt


In a small bowl blend Jersey Curd with the butter and Natural Live Yoghurt . Add the chopped onion, Hungarian paprika, salt, pepper and the caraway seeds. Mix to combine them. Chill for 3 to 4 hours so flavours can merge. Spread the Körözött on a slice of crusty bread or pitta bread, or it can be even filled in tomato peppers.
