Knysh Transcarpathian – holiday pies stuffed with cheese, herbs and lard. You can take any salo, but if it's a holiday, then why not use smoked, fragrant with spices.

Wheat Flour 250 g
Water 400 ml
Garlic 8 cloves

Cooking Recipe

The Transcarpathian knysh recipe is very simple. Mix flour and sift. Boil water, salt and gradually, adding flour, stir with a whisk until the water and flour are completely combined. Cover with a lid and set aside to cool.

During this time, you can prepare the filling. Finely chop the greens, grate the garlic on a fine grater, grate the cheese on a coarse grater and mix everything. Salo cut into thin slices.

When the dough has cooled, knead it on a floured board. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces and shape into balls.

Roll out each ball of dough, put the cheese filling in the center, and put a slice of lard on top. Cover the filling with dough and form an envelope with a hole in the center.

Put the knysh on a baking sheet covered with baking paper, grease with vegetable oil and place in the oven. Bake knysh at 180°С (355°F) for 30 minutes. Serve warm.
