    superbuna's Note:

    Kazakh fried pasties filled with meat. From Time-Life's Foods of the World's book Russian Cooking (1969).Posting this in reply to a request in the Eastern European Forum. I have not made this but it reads interesting and someday I will make it. When I do,I will probably add a few more seasonings or herbs to the filling.

      This is the recipe that I use....they are authentic tasting from what I remember as a child when first introduced to these delicious "buns"....I do add some salt to the dough, which makes it taste better...about 3/4 tsp. or so. This is definitely a keeper recipe and well worth the effort...my family goes nuts over them and once you eat one, you can't stop! LOL!
