Whisk together eggs, water and salt in large bowl.

Divide dough in half and keep covered and let rest for at least 30 minutes.

Filling and Pelmeni Preparation

First, combine all filling ingredients together in bowl, cover and set aside

Roll dough out on floured work surface into large rectangle, to about the thickness of pasta sheets.

Use 1 1/2 inch round cookie cutter and cut as many circles as possible.

Place 1½ teaspoons of filling onto each circle. Flour hands well and shape ravioli by pinching together the seams, forming a semi-circle then bringing the two edges together.

Place prepared ravioli onto flour pan until ready to cook. Can recombine scraps of dough and roll out again.

To cook ravioli, heat a large pot of well salted water to boiling. Cook ravioli in small batches for about 8 minutes.

Remove with slotted spoon into bowl. 

Dressing
