Pilmen - Pilmeni - Pilmenler
Here's another from that TimeLife 1969 Russian Foods book. There's nothing more nourishing on a cold day. I like it with Soy Sauce and Sprinkled with chopped Dill Weed and Black Pepper.
Typing these words causes salivation.
I also like to make "Martian Spaceship" variation of Pilmen with two circles of dough rather than one. Adding a touch of fresh Ginger Root Chineses up the flavor and adds a sharpness too. The recipe says to serve with Butter or Sour Creme. I've never seen this served with Sourcreme, but that's not illegal, I suppose.
The porkfat isn't something we'd be using either.
