Meat dish of the peoples of Central Asia, consisting of finely chopped meat rolled in thin dough, steamed in Montevarchi. Cooking options quite a lot-I prepared the option closest to the Uzbek Manty-a mixture of meat and onions with pieces of pumpkin for the filling and is thinly rolled unleavened dough. However the lamb was replaced by pork, but not the essence. The main difference from dumplings -- steaming, lots of onions and no meat in the stuffing!

Prepare the ingredients.
Onions cut in small cubes.
Pork and squash also cut into small cubes. Dumplings-not dumplings as the meat filling here is not minced, namely, finely chopped meat.
Knead the dough in flour and egg, gradually adding the water, stir until you get the desired consistency. Carefully hand mash the dough and leave it for 20 minutes "relax".
Cut the dough into equal parts, the number of manta rays, and formed of them balls, 3 cm in diameter.
The toppings (onions, meat, pumpkin and spices) mix well.
In the center of each tortilla put the stuffing separately and cut into small pieces, fat-one will add an extra richness. Fat is not added to the mixed filling, to ensure that each test is guaranteed to turned out to be a piece of bacon.
Fasten the opposite edge of the square cakes crosswise, tightly connecting joints-all the juice in the preparation should stay inside. And then bringing together the opposite edges, to get this kind of shape:
Heat to boil water into steam (Manto)cooking. In the dish pour oil and drop the bottom in every test it before you place it in the steamer, otherwise the dough will stick to the floor and when shifting will become marketable and spilled juice. Need to grease it manti, not tiers, because then very likely the situation with the missing oil inside the hole layer, and the dumplings will stick.
Lay out the dumplings on the tiers of the steamer so that they do not touch each other and cook them for 40-50 minutes. After put in a plate pour oil or sour cream and, if desired, sprinkle with fresh chopped greens. Bon appetit!
