few pinches of salt
1 tbsp vegetable oil
120ml warm water
1. first sift the flour into a mixing bowl. Make a well in the middle. add the salt, oil and water and mix to form a soft dough.
2. Tip onto a floured worktop and knead for a few minutes until smoother. Cover and set to one side.
3. Drain and rinse the sauerkraut and pop it in to a pan of water. Bring to the boil, then reduce and simmer for 20 mins.
4. Finely chop the mushrooms and sling into a frying pan with the butter. Drain the sauerkraut and add it to the pan, and cook gently for 5 minutes to soften.
5. Roll the pastry out to around 3mm thick and cut into rounds. iuse the top of a pint glass for mine, but any large pastry cutter will do.Dollop a generous teaspoon of the mushroom-sauerkraut mix into the centre of each. fold and press the edges together with a fork.
6. Bring a pan of water to the boil and add your pierogi. Cook for 4 minutes, or until they float. remove with a slotted spoon, and serve with soured cream or thick natural yoghurt, and chopped herbs.
