Step by step instruction of cooking Al-kashik
The dough should be of medium hardness. Cover dough, let stand for 7-10 minutes.
Now begin to roll out our dough. If the dough is large and t small, as in my case, it is necessary to divide into 2 parts. Liberally sprinkle the table and the dough with flour, roll out as for noodles.
The rolled out dough is folded like an accordion.
On this step, just cut the dough into small cubes, but I do as below, it turns smoother and the same.
Dice the dough, about 2.5 cm.
Then these cubes unfold and put on top of each other layers, but not much, 5 dice is enough. Remove the remaining dough aside and cover.
Again, cut into small cubes 2 - 2.5 cm and decompose.
On each cube to put the stuffing.
Opposite corners together, seal the edges...
... and tie as a handkerchief as dumplings.
And so be done with all.
