Procedure[edit | edit source]

  1. Cook potatoes until very soft (at least an hour). Peel and mash with a fork.
  2. Add the egg to the mixture, along with the little salt and oil. Mix well.
  3. Mix in enough flour to make a smooth dough.
  4. Knead the potato dough, then roll it out into a thin sheet (about 5 mm thick), and cut into squares.
  5. Put half a plum or 1 tsp of plum jam on each square. Wrap the dough around the filling and seal the edges.
  6. Cook in boiling water for 10 to 15 minutes.
  7. Serve with bread crumbs fried in butter.
