Kazan, Russia - 28th August 2015

Hello Mummy and Kamille! :rolleyes:

It was a cooking day today:) Together with Buzz we learnt to make "manti". It's an Eastern dish, a kind of dumplings made of unleavened dough and meat filling (Tatar cuisine is mostly not for vegeterians ;))

So, the process! B)
Firstly you should make the filling, it takes the most of the time actually, if you do it properly. Chop the meat (traditionally it is mutton, but we took beef) finely, then add onion, also chopped finely, in the proportion of 50/50. Add salt, pepper and other spices to your liking (caraway, for example). To fasten the process many housewives here take minced meat, though it's not a traditional recipe, of course. Actually the recipies may vary, some add potatoes, some add pumpkin, just use your fantasy)))) Then make the dough: simply mix warm water, flour and salt. Here is our result:

Then roll out the dough, cut it into squares and put the filling inside.

Form mantis by attaching the opposite sides of the squares.

We made 4 such plates :cyclops:
We steamed one part of the mantis and the rest was frozen:)
Yummy! ;)
