Russian Piroshki with Mashed Potato and Onion

I love piroshki, and I would like to share with my new favorite recipe.

For the dough:

     11 g of dry yeast
     2 tbsp sugar
     1 tsp salt
     3-4 tablespoons olive oil
     0.5 liters of warm water
4-6 cups of flour

For the filling:

     0.5 kg of potatoes
     2 large onions
     salt and pepper


In warm water dissolve the yeast, sugar and salt, add the olive oil and flour, knead the dough, so it is not sticking to the finger. Put it in a warm place for 20-30 minutes.

Boil the potatoes, fry the onions. In the puree add the onion and spices.
Divide dough into small pieces, knead by hand 
Add filling in the center, and pinch the edges together to seal the dough.
Flatten slightly
Fry over medium heat in vegetable oil on both sides until golden
Eat immediately, while crunchy!

Bon Appetite!

Thank You for this delicious recipe!!!
