As I am waiting for school to start I have been cooking every day. I would like to share some of these dishes with all of you at one table, but that is impossible. Maybe some of you will wan to make these little Russian tricks. Here is a simple dish that will warm your heart these Autumn days.

To feed five people you need to make the dough out of 1 egg, 3 cups of flour, 1 tsp of salt and about a cup of water. Make a nice dough and let it rest for half an hour. During this time you need to make the filling which, as it’s often done in Russian cuisine, can be anything. Ideally its a mixture of ground beef and ground pork with very finely chopped (if not graded) onion, garlic, spices and herbs. Today I used beef that I seasoned with paprika, hot pepper, chili powder, salt, cilantro, Italian seasoning and, of course, CUMIN!

Roll out a thin slab out of your dough, using lots of flour and cut out circles with the rim of a glass.


Using a spoon fill each circle with the goods and shape them into these cute little hat-like forms.


If you fuck around long enough with the shape you will see how easy it is to form them.

The finished product can be deep fried, steamed, or boiled. These are very forgiving and can be frozen for future generations. Ideally served hot, with sour cream! If you are deep frying them make sure you seal the edges very well. They actually cook very fast and the meat steams inside to produce a juicy explosion in your mouth. The juice will drip down your elbows.
