Ingredients:

For pies:

6 large potato
1 egg
2 tbsp flour
2 tbsp sour cream
1 small onion
1/2 tsp salt
Pinch of ground black pepper

For meat fillings:

8 oz ground meat
1 small onion
Salt and pepper on your taste
2 tbsp water

Vegetable oil for frying

Note:

For fish fillings, use the same ingredients but change meat to fish, and add some drops of a lemon juice.

For vegetable and mushroom fillings, use 16 oz of main ingredient (vegetables or mushrooms) for filling.

Method:

Grate the potatoes thinly.

Using a sieve, separate the potato juice from the starch, and set the juice aside.

Put the ground potatoes and the starch into a large bowl.

Grate the onion very thinly.

Combine all the pies' ingredients in the bowl.

Meanwhile, stir ingredients for a filling together and set aside.

Pre-heat 1 tbsp a vegetable oil in a skillet, over a medium heat.

Using 2 tablespoons, portion out four potato pancakes.

Shape 1-2 tbsp of the filling into a patty and place on top of the potato pancake.

Cover filling with more potato pie mixture, and bake, or cook under a lid until golden on both sides.

Serve hot with a sour cream, 1-2 pies per a portion.
