Have you ever made fried potato pies? Let's learn! At home, you can make delicious and mouth-watering pies with potatoes without much hassle, which will surely please all your family and invited guests!
milk (warm) - 2 glasses
- flour - 4 cups and 8 tbsp. l.
- eggs - 2 pcs.
- sour cream - 2 tbsp. l.
- sunflower oil - 2 tbsp. l.
- yeast - 1 tbsp. l.
- salt - 1 and 1/4 tbsp. l.
- sugar - 1/4 tbsp. l.

- onion - 2 pcs. (grind)
- butter - 120 gr.
- olive oil - 2 tbsp. l.

In a medium bowl, mix 1 cup of milk (warm), a quarter teaspoon of salt, sugar, yeast, 8 tbsp. tablespoons of flour.
We wait 10 minutes, and we see the foaming yeast, cover the bowl with a lid or a towel. While our yeast is foaming, we use a whisk or mixer: take another bowl and mix 1 glass of milk (warm!), Sour cream, butter, eggs and salt. Add 2 and half cups of flour and mix it all with a whisk / mixer.
Now you can add our cooked yeast.
Beat with a whisk / mixer and gradually add the remaining flour and beat thoroughly again.
Next, you should cover the bowl, having previously left it in a warm place, with plastic wrap. To make the prepared dough rise faster, you can cover it with a warm blanket over the plastic wrap. We leave for 1 hour.
The dough should become sticky, so I advise you to spread oil on your hands so that the dough does not stick to them. Sprinkle flour on the cutting board. Take a piece of dough about the size of a golf ball and roll it out on a cutting board. Now you need to put 2-3 tablespoons of the filling.
Next, you need to glue the dough on both sides. Thoroughly roll it in flour, roll it around the board: the seam should stick well. We do all this with the remaining dough and filling.
Next, heat the pan with enough oil. We put our pies on the frying pan with the seam down, only after that you can fry the other side.
After cooking, put our pies on a large plate, which is covered with a paper towel so that it is saturated with excess oil.
