Pyzy – Polish Steamed Yeast Dumpling
Polish Pyzy Recipe
- 500 g flour
- 300 ml milk (warm)
- 8 g dry yeast (or 20 g fresh yeast)
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp sugar
- ½ tsp salt
- Prepare the leaven by putting yeast, a teaspoon of sugar and 2 tablespoons of flour into warm milk. Stir, cover and set aside for 15 minutes.300 ml milk, 8 g dry yeast, 1 tsp sugar
- In a bowl, mix 2 eggs, salt, sifted flour and risen leaven. Knead the dough for about 10 minutes. You can use a robot for that. Then cover the bowl and leave the dough to rise for 1-2 hours.500 g flour, 2 eggs, ½ tsp salt
- When the dough has risen, make balls out of it. Sprinkle flour on your hands and the baking sheet or a plate on which you will place the pyzy so that the dough does not stick to them. Then cover the pyzy with a cloth and leave to rise again for 30 minutes.
- When the dumplings grow up, steam them. To do this pour water (approx. 2 cm) into the pot, put a colander/sieve in it or use a steamer. You can grease the colander/sieve with oil so that the dough does not stick to it. When the water in the pot starts to boil, place the pyzy on the sieve and cover the pot. Cook the pyzy for about 10 minutes and done. Serve with gravy.
