Varenyky are popular Ukrainian dumplings filled with a variety of ingredients such as vegetables, meat, cheese, sauerkraut, eggs, mushrooms, and even fruit. These stuffed dumplings are usually shaped into squares or half-moons, boiled or steamed, then drizzled with oil or melted butter and paired with sour cream.
The main difference between Varenyky and Pelmenis is more complex preparation process of Varenyky: we have to prepare another choux dough and another more complex filling, like specially cooked boiled meat or other vegetarian filling. But the great taste of Varenyky with a sour-cream worth these extra efforts.
