3 cup flour
2/3 cup luke warm water
1 tsp salt
900g ground meat (lamb, chicken, pork, ground beef or a combination!)
1 large onion grated
1/2 tbsp salt to taste
1 tsp pepper to taste
Sift the flour with salt into a mixing bowl. Add eggs, mix the dough for a short bit, then add water to the dough.
Combine everything into a smooth texture by hand or using a mixer.
Combine together ground meat, grated onion, salt and pepper.
To make Pelmeni by hand, roll out the dough and cut out small circles using a cookie cutter. Place meat in the middle and fold over the sides into a half-moon shape, pinching the edges together. Connect the two corners together.
Bring a large pot of salted water to boil and add Pelmeni. You’ll know they’re ready once you see them float to the top. Take Pelmeni out using a strainer. Drizzle them with butter and serve with a side of sour cream.
To save time use a mold to make Pelmeni. Roll out a flat piece of dough and place it on a floured mold. Fill each hole with meat.
Make one more flat, round piece of dough and place it on top. Sprinkle with flour and roll over it with a roller until each piece is separated.
Flip the mold over and shake out the Pelmeni. Dust them with flour, either freeze for later or boil them to cook.
