Rolls with potatoes and fried onions, These rolls are a large number of fillings in a thin shell of crispy dough. You can make them in advance and freeze, and then fry. They are good both hot and cold. Great for Breakfast, snacks or evening tea. Note on the dough — it is also suitable for making vegetable dumplings.

For the dough:

  • Flour — 2,5-3 cups (Cup — 250 ml)
  • Water — 1 Cup
  • Sesame oil or olive oil — 2 tbsp
  • Salt — 1 tsp
For the filling:

  • Potatoes — 8 medium tubers
  • Onions — 4 large bulbs
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Salt to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper — pinch
  • Ground sweet paprika — a pinch
Pre-boil the potatoes in their skins until tender and leave to cool.

For the dough sift 2.5 cups of flour — in a comfortable deep bowl. Mix the water, salt and oil. Bring to a boil and pour the boiling mixture into the flour, carefully mixing. The dough will be ragged, lumpy, pomeshivaya will be difficult. That's okay — leave it on for half an hour under a towel and it will become more "obedient".

Meanwhile, peel the onion and cut into cubes. Fry the onion in vegetable oil, stirring constantly, until it becomes soft and crispy. Peel the cooked potato, remember tolkushkoy. Add the cooked onions with the butter in which it was browned, salt, add black pepper and paprika. Mix. The filling should be thick and dense.

Knead the dough. It will become soft and elastic. If the dough is sticky — add a few spoons of flour. The finished dough should roll out without podpylenny flour.

Fry the rolls: first, seam side down, then the remaining three sides. After, place them on a dish with a paper towel and DAB excess oil. As I said, can be eaten cold, but hot, crispy, they are particularly good.
