Dough for pies with potatoes

To cook placinda with potatoes, mix flour with salt, pour vegetable oil into the water. Knead a tough dough of water and flour. Divide the resulting dough into 4 parts and let stand.

Potatoes on the dough

Peel and cut the potatoes into small slices. The finer you cut the potatoes, the faster the pies will bake. Roll out a thin layer of the dough, put the raw potato filling in the middle, a slice of butter on top. This is to ensure that the inside of the potatoes is not dry.

Placinda formation

Cut the edges of the dough, not reaching the filling, into 8 petals. Connect the dough petals to the center and press down a little.

Placinta with potatoes

Fry the placinta prepared in this way in vegetable oil over low heat under a lid. Fry on both sides for about 7-10 minutes on each side. The finished placinta should crunch and still be juicy.
