    The necessary ingredients for cooking fried russian dumplings
  • Heat the vegetable oil well in a pan. Try to put one dumpling in, it should sizzle. This means the oil temperature is sufficient and you can pour out the rest. If you put the dumplings on a poorly heated pan, they may stick.

    Frozen dumplings in a frying pan
  • Fry over medium heat for 2 minutes until browned, then flip. Hold for the same amount of time and pour in water. Its level should reach one third of the height of the dumplings.

    Stewing dumplings
  • The liquid will partially be absorbed by the dumplings and partially evaporate. Add herbes de Provence, salt, and garlic passed through a press. For salt, I recommend trying the dumplings themselves, as store-bought ones are often quite salty.
    ¼ tsp herbes de Provence, 1 clove garlic
    Salt, spices, garlic
  • Mix, hold for another minute. Let it stand under the lid for some time so that the flavors of garlic and herbs are better revealed. Fried dumplings are ready. Offer sour cream or any other sauce as an addition.
