Echpochmak - Tatarian Dumpling

After New Year (I know...it's taken a while to post this) we had meat mixture from Manti left over. Weren't sure what to do with it and found this. The original recipe calls for potatoes instead of the pumpkin we had in the manti, but that's okay, it worked out quite splendidly. It would be super fun to try with the potato though!

Here's the original recipe: https://1000.menu/cooking/1603-echpochmak


600 g flour
200 ml milk
125 grams (1 stick) butter
9 grams yeast
1 tbsp sugar

we used left over manti filling which was 1:1:1 ground beef, pumpkin, onion plus salt and pepper seasoning to taste


1. Combine yeast with warm milk add sugar and mix in the stand mixer
2. Add softened butter 
3. Mix
4. Add in flour and salt and using the dough hook, mix until the dough is slightly sticky but forms a dough ball. 
5. Put in a warm place to rise. 
6. After dough has risen, I like to split the dough in half, then each half into half again until I get the desired number of dough balls. Then I roll them out. 
7. Add filling and pinch the circles together into a triangle shape. 

8. Bake at 180 C for 30 minutes

Optional - and Egg wash with one egg and some milk will result in a nice crispy, crunchy looking top - if you add sesame seeds to the top it adds to the aesthetics.  

What we liked:

It was fun to try a new recipe and this was a great way to use up leftover manti filling. 

What we didn't like:

It was probably not as good as pirjoki... and we would like to try with the potato filling instead of the pumpkin. 

What Kaspian thought about it:

He liked it okay, not too thrilled with it. 

Next time:

try the potatoes mixed with meat!
