- 24 oz wonton wrappers (100 wrappers, 2 packs)
- 1/2 lb ground pork
- 1/4 lb ground chicken
- 1/2 medium onion, grated on protruding holes
- 1 garlic cloves, minced
- ¾ tsp salt, or to taste
- ⅛ tsp ground black pepper
- ½ tsp vinegar
- 2 tsp water
- 1-2 Tbsp dill, chopped
In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients for the filling until well incorporated. Cover and set aside until ready for use.
Cut the square wonton wrappers into circles using kitchen shears.
Working in batches, layout the wrappers on a floured surface. Add a teaspoon of the meat filling in the center of each wrapper.
Dip finger in water and run it around the edge of the wrapper. Fold the wrapper in half over the filling and seal tightly. Then shape into a dumpling.
Bring water to a boil and season with salt (or Vegeta) and a bay leaf.
Add the pelmeni to the water. Once they float, cook 2-3 minutes or until filling is fully cooked. DON'T overcook the dumplings, they will start to fall apart.
Remove the pelmeni from the water with a large skimmer or gently dump into a strainer.
Toss pelmeni with butter and serve with sour cream or desired toppings.
