It's like a veggie pattie made of spinach and bhajee, with cheese and chilli raita sauce.

Made piroshki on Sunday night.

They're small pasties with a mashed potato and onion filling. Very easy to make, you cut a circle of pastry out with a cup, put the filling in the middle, then fold it up the middle and pinch it.

They're quite different to gyoza, it's like a pie dough and they're baked.

Did you make the pastry yourself? They look cracking.

No, we cheated Oops

We got a money off voucher from Sainsbury's for a "Jus Rol Thin Crust Pizza Kit" so made a pizza and used the remainder of the pastry for the piroshki. It wasn't great for the pizza but was perfect for the piroshki.

They are a bit like Russian Cornish pasties, but smaller and lighter / softer pastry generally.

Gas Mark 6 for 15 minutes timmbo.

They make them with all kinds of different fillings in Russia, mushroom is very popular, as is minced beef. There are also sweet fillings, apple is particularly good.

Pierogi are different to piroshki. The Russian equivalent to pierogi is pelmeni, somewhere between dumplings (like gyoza) and tortelloni.
