The rich colouring of paprika not only enhances the visual appeal of foods, but it can also be used as a key flavouring. It goes well with just about any savoury food, including vegetable curries, stews, creamy sauces, pastas, pizzas, tomato dishes and salads. For most recipes, the paprika is added near the end of the cooking process, because heat diminishes both the colour and flavour. Paprika is the main flavouring used in Hungarian cooking. Paprika is useful as a simple garnish for almost any savoury dish. Sprinkle paprika on potatoes or homemade fries. Paprika can be mixed with bread crumbs before sprinkling over casseroles or vegetables.
