Potato piroshki


For the dough

  • In a mixer’s bowl add the milk, the yeast, the sugar, and whisk well.
  • Add the flour, salt, the olive oil, and beat with the hook attachment, for 5-8 minutes, at high speed. The dough will be quite soft.
  • Transfer to a greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let it double in volume.

For the filling

  • Place a frying pan over high heat and add the butter.
  • Finely chop the onion and add it to the pan. Sauté well until caramelized.
  • Add the cumin, pepper, the potatoes cut into pieces, salt, and mix. 
  • Remove from the heat and press with a potato masher until the potatoes are completely mashed.
  • Set aside to cool well.

To assemble

  • Place a frying pan with the sunflower oil over medium-low heat.
  • Dust your working surface with flour and place the dough on it. Since the dough is quite sticky, you will need to coat your hands with flour as well.
  • Cut the dough into 6 pieces and roll out each piece until it is 15 cm in diameter. Divide the filling among them and brush around the edges with a little water. Seal the edges and press them together so that your piroshkis will not open. Then, add them in the frying pan in batches.
  • Fry for 1-2 minutes on each side until the dough is cooked through and golden.
  • Remove them, transfer on paper towels, and serve with oregano.
