Hello friends. Today we are preparing dumplings from cottage cheese. Such a simple and very authentic Ukrainian dish, which is associated with Patsyuk from the legendary film "Evenings on a Farm near Dykanka". They symbolize a whole culture, mainly Poltava cuisine, and we will certainly talk about this a little below. In the meantime, we just note that dumplings can be not only from cottage cheese, although today we offer just such a recipe. They are just as simple from ordinary dough with various sauces and additives: cherries, sour cream, cracklings, mushrooms, the so-called grout from flour fried in lard, etc. Is it really interesting to know more? If so, here's a little history.
Galushki is a Ukrainian national dish and it is nothing more than pieces of dough that are boiled in boiling water. I believe that something similar to dumplings is also found in Italian cuisine called gnocchi, in the national cuisines of Ingushetia and Cherni under the names galosha and khatlamash, respectively. True, if Ukrainian dumplings are more often served as an independent dish, clones still mostly serve as a side dish. These pieces of dough work great in tandem with meat cooked in different ways.
But today we are still talking about dumplings and therefore dwell on them in more detail. Firstly, dumplings are plucked and torn, all because some are torn off by hand, while others are cut off neatly with a knife. Secondly, they are boiled both in ordinary water and in broths. And thirdly, they are so cool that they even erected a monument to them in Poltava. Poltava residents owe their special love for dumplings, as many have already guessed, to Nikolai Vasilyevich Gogol and his immortal works. And it's time for us to move on to the mystery of cooking and offer you cottage cheese dumplings in our interpretation and their recipe with a photo.
As much as we would like to broadcast about the benefits of dumplings, it is not easy to do this. This is because the dough is not useful a priori. Nevertheless, we will try to find something good in this simple and at the same time symbolic culinary work. And the first thing to note is the ability to use not wheat, but for example buckwheat or oat flour - this will give dumplings a new sound and more useful properties. Secondly, instead of jam, they can be seasoned with fresh berries or natural yogurt. As a result, such a breakfast can become both hearty and nutritious and healthy, like lazy dumplings, for example.
