This recipe is from village Nijemci in Slavonia (eastern Croatia). Nijemci literally means Germans; I have collected this recipe during annual minority fair in Zagreb where minorities present their culture. German minority was pretty large in eastern Croatia, but after 2WW Bolsheviks wiped them out (mostly kill them in concentration camps). Village Nijemci remind us of that minority (today we have about 2000-3000 Germans (volksdeutsch) living in Croatia) and they mostly live in east Croatia. The recipe is time consuming but very nice Sunday family gathering meal.
