  3. Mix thoroughly with your hands.

Assembling and Cooking:

  1. Divide the dough into 8 equal balls. Work with one ball at a time, keeping the others covered.

  2. Roll each dough ball into a disc.

  3. Place a portion of the potato mixture on one disc, leaving the edges clear.

  4. Cover with another dough disc and seal the edges with water, pressing gently with fingers.
