Filling:

3
50g of boiled potatoes
450g of cheese
50g of butter
Salt (to taste)

Preparation:

Start making the dough by dissolving sugar and yeast in warm milk and letting it stand for 10 minutes. Sift the flour, put it into a cooking pot and make a circular indentation in the center large enough to accommodate the necessary ingredients. Next, pour milk, kefir and sour cream in it, add salt and an egg. Knead the dough. It may turn out soft and sticky, but this is normal. Cover the pot and let the dough rise.

Now make the filling: mash the warm potatoes, add butter, ground cheese and salt. Mix and knead for a bit.

After the dough rises, sprinkle your preparation table with flour. Put the dough on it, flatten and split it into even portions. Put filling in the middle and close the dough around it, creating disc-like shapes. Bake at 200°C in a pre-heated oven. After the discs are done, coat their top side with butter and serve.
