Sasha. Pierogi po rusku here in Poland are those perogies with cheese and potato.
Are those the most popular in Russia? I don't quite understand the reference..
From what I know, all sorts of perogies are made in each region of Slavija, with no specific region mastering one kind.
Hello, Filios! :)
To avoid misunderstanding...
Here's Russian "pirogi".
They may be stuffed with meat, cheese, powidlo (jam... usually apple) or anything else.
This is what I think you mean by Polish pierogi.
So the word "pi(e)rogi" is kinda false-friend in this case, cause we call pretty same way different things. This dish exist in Russian and Ukranian quisine under the different name - "vareniki" (derives from the verb "varit"=to boil). It's usually stuffed with curd, cheese etc. In case the filling is a meat we call it "pelmeni". I don't know why... probably that's only a question of my personal preference but I can't imagine them stuffed with any kind of sweet (like "powidlo") filling. However I know people that stuff 'em here with some fruit or berries (usually plums, blueberries, cherry).
