Main Dish

No Yeast Piroshki

I love this recipe because it does not have yeast. Doesn’t take time for the dough to rise, tastes supper flaky and light. Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do.


  • 2 cups of flour + some for rolling
  • 1 cup of buttermilk or Kefir
  • 2 table spoons of vegetable oil
  • 1 tea spoon of salt
  • 1/2 tea spoon of sugar
  • 1 table spoons of baking powder
  • 1/2 tea spoon baking soda mixed with 1 tea spoon of vinegar
  • Mashed potatoes about 3-4 cups
  • Oil for frying


  1. In a deep bowl combine flour , salt , baking powder.
  2. Add buttermilk , vegetable oil.
  3. Mix really well till all ingredients well combined and no lumps. ( you can use your hands )
  4. Form your dough into a ball , Cover your dough and set aside for 10 min. This will give time for baking powder to activate.
  5. Take your mashed potatoes and add lots of black pepper to it and some fresh dill or green onions.
  6. Once your dough is ready, cut the dough in 4th. Then take each piece and cut it in 3, Using your hand make a ball out of each piece.
  7. Roll out each ball and place a full table spoon of mashed potatoes. Fold in each corner and gently press down with your hand to flatten it.
  8. Heat your deep pan with oil. Fry each pirogi till golden on each side.
  9. Place your pirogi on to paper towel to drain any oil.
  10. Enjoy !!

AboutLily’s Cooking & Home

My story, I met the love of my life when I was 16 and two years later we were married. When we first got married I was not much of a cook, I would buy so many cook books and try recipes over and over again until it would turn out. I never gave up and my husband can tell you I had my share of bad cooking. The more I practiced the better I got. Now we are going on 10 years of happily married. I love to cook and create my own recipe also became a baker, I have also taken interest in doing home design and decor. In my blog I would love to share with you the recipes I create, recipes I find and love to share also tips for home decor and ideas.
