Instruction for piroshki dough:

Before going to the piroshki goosht recipe tutorial, we must say that you can use ready-made pirashki dough and piroshki bread to prepare it, or you can prepare it yourself at home.

Of course, the method of preparing all kinds of piroshki goosht with dough and handmade is the same; the only difference is in the type of dough.

1. At the beginning of the work, we mix the yeast dough with sugar and half a cup of warm water and mix well.

2. After the dough is ready, put it in a large bowl, add eggs, salt, and a little liquid oil to it, and mix it together. We continue to do this until the ingredients are completely uniform.

3. Add flour to the homogenized ingredients and knead by hand. At the end, the dough should become sticky; if this does not happen, you should add more flour.

It is even possible that the added flour is too much, which causes the dough to dry and harden; in this case, you should add a little water and knead again.

4. The prepared dough should be kneaded for about 15 minutes. After this, grease a bowl, put the dough in it, and let it rest. Cover the dough with cellophane and place it warm and moisture-free for an hour.
