DIRECTIONS

  • Coarsely grate the raw potatoes and squeeze out as much water as possible. Put them in a bowl with the mashed potatoes, salt and pepper. Mix together.
  • In another bowl, mix the cottage cheese and chives together.
  • Using a spoon and your fingers scoop up a portion of the potato mixture, slightly smaller then an egg and flatten into a circle.
  • Put 1 teaspoon of the cheese filling in the middle; fold over the edges and pinch to seal.
  • Repeat with remaining potato and cheese mixtures; makes about 12 dumplings.
  • Heat the oil to 340 degrees Fahrenheit in a deep fat fryer.
  • Fry for 10 minutes or until deep brown and crisp.
  • Drain and serve hot.
