Piroshki

Method

  • Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal).
  • Cook the potatoes in lightly salted, boiling water until tender. Then drain well and mash.
  • Heat the oil and butter in a large heavy-bottomed pan and gently saute the leeks, bacon and garlic until reasonably tender. Add the cabbage and gently toss for 3-4 mins until starting to wilt. Then add the stock, mix well and cook until reduced.
  • Place the sauerkraut, mustard and dill in a large bowl with the mashed potato, seasonings and cabbage. Mix well and set aside to cool.
  • Beat the egg and milk in a small bowl.
  • Then cut the pastry sheets into large rounds and brush the edges with the egg wash. Spoon a good mound of the cabbage mixture on one side of the pastry, fold over and crimp the edges with a fork. Repeat the process.
  • Place the pastries on a lightly oiled baking sheet and brush the top with egg wash. Then sprinkle generously with poppyseeds and cook in the oven for about 15 mins.
