How To Make Vegetable Triangles

Add the flour, water, and a pinch of salt to a large mixing bowl.

Knead the dough until smooth.

Divide the dough into 4 parts and roll each into a bowl.

Allow to stand for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, grate the carrots into a small bowl.

Add the grated carrots to the cabbage. Make a filling of carrots, cabbage, salt, pepper, and paprika.

Roll out the dough and make a slit with a knife or dough scraper.

Coat with butter and fill with the prepared mixture.

Fold each part over the other to form a triangle.

Use a fork to pinch and seal the edges.

Place the triangles in an oiled pan over medium heat.

Fry until the one side is golden brown. Flip and continue frying until the dough is cooked through.

Serve and enjoy!


Don’t over knead the dough as it will allow the gluten to develop too much, which will make it tough.
