Fried Pies with Potatoes and Mushrooms

Another traditional russian dish for these who feel adventurous to make it: fried pies with potatoes and mushrooms (piroshki or pyrizhky).

I don’t think it is hard to do, but it does require some time and can be a nice activity for whole family, since assembling pies will go faster with more hands 🙂

You can use ready-to-go dough, or prepare dough yourself, for this recipe you would need about half of the batch prepare for unsweetened yeast dough

Serve pies warm or cooled down, alone or accompanied by a clear broth or soup.
