  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 glass of sparkling mineral water
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups of wheat flour
  • 100 ml of rapeseed oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt


  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 600 g mushrooms (boletes – frozen, champignons)
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • salt, pepper, thyme
  • 3 tablespoons of chopped parsley


  • 2 kg of beetroot
  • 1 celery
  • 1 see
  • 2 parsley
  • 4 onions
  • 20 g of dried porcini mushrooms
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 2 sour apples
  • salt, pepper, sugar, allspice, bay leaves, spirit vinegar


  • chives or leek cut to length to bind pouches


  1. Cook the red borscht the day before.

Bake half of the beetroots in their skins wrapped in aluminum foil and 2 onions in their shells until tender at 220 ° C. Put the remaining beetroots, peeled and cut into pieces, and other vegetables into a pot. Pour water all over it.

After boiling, add the spirit vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper, allspice and bay leaves. Cook over very low heat until the vegetables are tender.

Peel the baked beetroots, grate them on a large-mesh grater, place them in a pot and pour over the strained broth.

Cook the borscht without bringing it to the boil. Add the chopped whole garlic cloves, baked onions with shells and sour apple peels.

We set aside for the whole night. On the second day, strain it and, if necessary, season it.

  1. Thoroughly mix all the ingredients for the pancakes. We set aside for half an hour. On hard
    Pour a ladle of dough into the heated pan. Fry on both sides for about a minute.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan, add squeezed garlic and diced onion, then add chopped mushrooms and butter. Fry for about 10 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, thyme and add chopped parsley to the stuffing.
  3. Place a portion of the mushroom stuffing in the center of the pancake, roll the pancake into a pouch,
    which we tie with chives. Place the purse on a deep plate and pour in the borscht. We serve immediately.

Enjoy your meal! 🎄😊
