This is a traditional Russian dish that is made in many Kazakstani homes.
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 2 eggs 1/2 cup water 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 pound ground beef 1/2 pound ground pork 2 medium onions, finely chopped 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon black pepper Garlic, to taste
To make the dough, combine the flour, eggs, water and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Knead mixture. Let rest for 30 minutes.
Mix the ground beef, ground pork, onions, 1 teaspoon salt, pepper and garlic together. Roll the dough into a thin layer and cut into small circles. Place a small amount of meat in the center of each circle of dough. Fold the edges of the dough over the meat to form a ravioli-shaped dumpling. Boil the Pelmeni in salted water for seven minutes, or until they float to the surface. Serve them in soup plates with sour cream or in broth.
