Legendary Dishes | Galushky (cheese and egg dumplings)


Typical Ukrainian but known throughout northern and central Europe, galushky are the ancestor of fast food – quick and easy to prepare. The dough can be stiff or loose, and cut into squares or long strips. This is another recipe from chef Andrey Kokarev.

  • 600 g flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 200 g curd cheese, grated
  • 200 ml water
  • 150 g butter
  • 100 ml sour cream
  • 30 g sugar
  • Salt, large pinch
  • Water, for boiling

Stir the water into the flour, add three eggs and knead into a smooth dough. Roll out 1 cm thick, divide into 1.5 cm squares and boil in salted water. When they rise to the surface they are ready.
Combine remaining egg, cheese, sour cream and sugar, toss galushky in mixture. Transfer to a deep tray and bake in a hot oven for 30 minutes. Before serving, pour butter over galushky. Serve with soup.
