Sour Egg Soup – (Savanyú tojásleves)

Sour Egg Soup  -  (Savanyú tojásleves)
1 small red onion, 3 tablespoons oil, 1 teaspoon sugar, 1 tablespoon flour, 1 teaspoon sweet paprika, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 bay leaf, 2-3 eggs, 1 tablespoon 10% sweet vinegar

Clean the onion and shred it or chop very finely. Heat the oil in a pot, add the onion and the sugar. Over medium heat sauté for 2 minutes, stirring constantly – it’s done when the sugar has caramelized and the onion turned glassy. Sift on the flour and the paprika and immediately cover with 1 quart of cold water. Add salt and bay leaf then cook for 2-3 minutes, bring it to a boil, stirring occasionally. Beat the eggs lightly in a separate bowl. Pull the soup to the side, slowly drip the eggs into it, stirring once in a while. Add vinegar to taste.
