I discovered these dumplings during a short stay in Siberia. These savory little nuggets are what frozen food is all about! Needless to say, in the winter months, refrigeration is not needed. Huge bags are filled with foods and simply stored outside during the interminable winter months. The pelmeni are simply taken out of the bag, popped into a beef or chicken broth or they can be fried in butter. I prefer the boiling method as stated in this recipe. Pelmeni is usually eaten with the inevitable sour cream and maybe with a sprinkle of dill.
