Curried Noodle Kugle

My mother always translated "kugel" as "pudding", but her standard one, sweeter and without nuts or seasoning, was always served as a main course side dish. Altho she was often inclined to experiment with recipes, a mainstay like this was always made the same way. That's why I stayed with the bow tie noodles (varnishkes) instead of the ordinary egg noodles which this recipe called for when we found it; radical change is all well and good but you have to remember the basics.

1 16 ounce container of sour cream
1 32 ounce container of small curd cottage cheese
6 large eggs
2 cups currants
1.5 cups chopped walnuts
6 tablesoon Indian (yellow) curry powder
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground pepper
1 12 ounce package bow tie noodles

mix sour cream, cottage cheese, eggs, currants, 1 cup of walnuts, curry powder, salt and pepper together. allow to stand to let flavors develop.

pre-heat oven to 350. butter a 9"x16"x2" pan.

cook noodles in boiling water. drain and add the previously mixed ingredients. mix well. pour into pan and sprinkle with remaining half cup of walnuts. bake for about 1 hour, until set.
