Christmas Polish ravioli


For dough: 

  •  2 cups of wheat flour
  • 0,8 cup of warm water
  •  pinch of salt 
  •  1 egg 


  • 100 grams of dried forest mushrooms
  • 1 onion, cubed
  • ground black pepper
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 2 table spoons of bread crumbs

  • slice of butter

How to make Christmas Polish ravioli

  1. Sift the flour, add salt, water, whisked egg, mix well and knead uniform, smooth dough. 

  2. If the dough is sticky, feel free to add more flour. When ready, let the dough "rest" for 15 min.

  3. Soak dried mushrooms in warm water for 1 hour.

  4. Boil mushrooms for 15 min, strain and minced.

  5. Heat oil, fry onion and garlic, add mushrooms, fry about 5 min.

  6. Add bread crumbs, salt and pepper.

  7. Roll out the dough, 1,5 mm thickness, cut out rectangular, put one tea spoon of mushroom stuffing, fold in half, diagonally, close the edge to form triangle, stick together two corners to receive "ravioli" shape. Repeat with remaining dough. 

  8. Cook in boiling water for about 5 min. It's possible to serve them as side dish garnished with butter or add to beetroot soup.

    Thank you for your comment. I usually don't cook Polish traditional food, but Christmas is exception. Anyway, I'm strongly convince that ravioli and other dumplings are worth trying and huge variety of Polish cakes is advantage of our national cuisine.

    I would recommend making these with ground beef instead. a pinch of dried mushrooms will not ruin it, but the meat adds fragrance. cook in beef stock for maximum pleasure! :) best served with sour cream and/or a little vinegar and herbs/pepper.
