  • In a separate bowl, mix together flour and dry yeast.
  • Start adding the flour with the yeast mixture into the bowl with wet ingredients. To make the job easier, use an electric mixer with a hook attachment.
  • Add ½ cup of flour at a time and mix until the dough forms into a ball. You might need less than 3 cups of flour, that’s the reason why we don’t add it all at once.

  • When the dough is formed, cover the bowl with a plastic wrap or a towel and place in a warm place for the dough to rise. Leave it for 2 hours or until the dough doubles in size and is soft and easy to work with.

  • While the dough rises, prepare the potato filling.
  • Peel the potatoes and onion. Cut potatoes in pieces, place them in a pot, cover with cold water, and cook covered for 20 minutes until potatoes are tender.

  • Now you can start shaping your piroshki. Pinch off pieces approximately the size of a golf ball (eep the rest of the dough in a bowl covered while working on each piece).
  • Roll the piece into a disk shape, about 3 ½ inches in diameter, adding flour when needed.
  • Place a tablespoon of the filling on the center of the disk, fold disk over the filling and firmly pinch the edges to seal.
  • Place formed piroshki on a lightly floured surface and let them sit for about 5-10 minutes.
  • In a large heavy skillet heat the oil and fry piroshki in batches on both sides until golden brown (sealed side down). Remove and drain piroshki on a plate lined with a paper towel.
  • You can serve piroshki hot or cold, they taste great either way!
