Secrets of cooking traditional dishes pie

Going on a trip to another country, tourists try to see not only the main attractions, but also to know it from the inside. To do this, they often settle in non-tourist zones and are actively acquainted with the way of life of the local people. And a mandatory item in this list is the national food. Today we will talk about the traditional Russian dish, which every guest of our great Motherland - pies should try.

A bit of history

This pastry, representing open pies with different fillings, is by no means the most joyful story of origin. Peasants in Russia could not boast of an abundance of food, so they tried to use any of them without residue. When a fish appeared in the house, it was cooked from it, baked, roasted. But the experienced housewives were sorry to throw even small remnants that remained after the cutting. And so the first pie appeared.

The dough is usually laid tendon, which holds the spine of sturgeon. In addition to a good taste, it also contains a large amount of nutrients. And since it had to be boiled for too long, as a result of which the tendon lost its taste, such residue began to bake. And in order for them to be baked for sure, they made small holes in the dough, as if “unbuttoning” it, hence the name of delicious pastry.

Of course, sturgeon in peasant families did not appear often, so soon other variants of such pies appeared, with leftovers of cereals and vegetables.
