Halušky (IPA: [ɦaluʃkɪ], plural in Czech and Slovak; Hungarian: galuska, or nokedli; Ukrainian: галушка, romanizedhalushka; Lithuanian: virtinukai; Turkish: holuşka) are a traditional variety of thick, soft noodles or dumplings found in many Central and Eastern European cuisines under various local names.[1][2][3]

The term halušky can refer to the dumplings themselves, or to a complete dish containing other ingredients. Typically the dish described is noodles with sauteed cabbage and onions.[4][5] Bryndzové halušky , which combines the noodles with a soft sheep's cheese, is one of the national dishes of Slovakia.[6][7][8] In certain regions of the Antalya Province in South Turkey, holuşka is made with larger dumplings than its counterparts in Central and Eastern Europe.[9]

A haluskar is a kitchen utensil used to drop batter into stock to create the noodles.[10]
