The big dining table in our living room becomes a floured baker’s workplace and every corner of our house smells like a bakery when my wife and my mother-in-law prepare Belyashi after grandma’s recipe.
Fully hand-made, all natural and f***ing delicious.
Oil-fried, minced meat-filled Belyashi are a Tatar tradition in the Russian home-made cuisine.
It is something terribly exciting between pancakes and dumplings, made from yeast dough, filled with minced meat and fried in oil. Make sure you fry them the hole down! A Tatar traditional home-made dish which you serve with vegetable broth – I prefer sour cream – and a glass of Vodka with each piece.
You shouldn’t be on a low-fat diet though or just shouldn’t bother about some additional 1,500 kcal in your daily energy balance. Personally, I use a “messy” day for this kind of feasting, means the one day per week when I am allowed to eat whatever I want.
