I propose to cook khinkali with pumpkin. Thanks to onions and sweet pumpkin filling, it turns out incredibly tasty and aromatic! You can add garlic, hot peppers, or any fresh seasonal herbs if desired. It is best to take pork or beef as minced meat, or lamb. Our family loved the mixed minced meat option. The meat inside is very juicy, with tender pumpkin pieces and a delicious broth. They eat khinkali, taking each by the tail, then bite off a piece of dough on one side, drink a fragrant broth, and then eat everything completely. And of course, no forks! Try it!
Prepare all ingredients.
Combine water, egg, 1 tsp. salt, vegetable oil and mix everything.
Add flour in portions.
Knead a firm and elastic dough that does not stick to your hands. Cover it with a towel and let sit for 20-30 minutes.
Transfer the minced meat to a deep bowl.
Add the pumpkin, cut into small cubes.
Add finely chopped onion, salt and spices to taste.
Mix everything well. The filling is ready.
Pinch off a piece from the dough, roll it out with a sausage and cut into pieces (the size of the pieces depends on the desired size of the khinkali). Roll each piece in a circle, lay the filling in the center.
Then, lift the edges of the dough and pinch them in folds to form a neat pouch. At the end of the base of the khinkali, press firmly with your fingers and, if necessary, cut or tear off the tail.
Thus, form all the khinkali. Pour water into a large saucepan, season with salt and bring to a boil. Gently dip the khinkali in boiling water and boil them for about 7-10 minutes after they float.
Khinkali with pumpkin are ready. Enjoy your meal!
