Pelmeni are cooked really fast. It take approx. 7-8 minutes. They can be consumed as a soup, but they should NOT be blended. You can add any sauce : mayonnaise , ketchup , double or single cream or just butter. You can steam them (though this will take approx. 20 minutes) or fry them in oil on a frying pan. It is very convenient to have a frozen pack of pelmeni in your freezer. It’s meal for the whole family.
