Easy and Fluffy Piroshki with Potato

Let’s prepare another easy and delicious vegan recipe: fluffy piroshki stuffed with potato! You can enjoy them as an appetizer with beer, wine, as a snack or for breakfast.

They are usually made in a pan or fryer and that gives them a wonderful crispy crust that makes them irresistible. But if you want them healthier, you can bake them in the oven. Or you can make half of them fried and the other half baked to decide which you prefer. 😉

Cuisine greek, Mediterranean
Servings 15 piroshki


For the filling

  • 5 large potatoes around 600 g
  • 4 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 3 spring onions finely chopped
  • ½ bunch of fresh dill chopped
  • ½ tsp. sweet paprika
  • oregano
  • a bit of thyme
  • salt
  • pepper

For the dough

  • 1 package dry yeast 9 g
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 250 ml lukewarm water
  • 600 g all-purpose flour you might need a bit more so that it does not stick to your hands
  • 75 ml olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. white vinegar
  • 1 ½ tsp. salt


For the dough

  • In a bowl, mix the yeast, sugar and lukewarm water, cover it and leave it aside for 15-20 minutes to activate the yeast.
  • In the bowl with the yeast, slowly add the flour and all the other ingredients, mixing well with your hand.
  • Knead on a floured surface until it does not stick to your hands. The dough should be neither too firm nor runny. Cover it and let it rise for about an hour.

For the filling

  • Clean and boil the potatoes until they are soft enough so you can mash them more easily (it can take more or less 20 minutes).
  • In a pan, heat the onions to soften them for a few minutes and then, add the mashed potatoes and the remaining ingredients. Cook them for a few more minutes. Remove from heat and wait for it to cool.
  • Take some of the dough to shape it into a small ball. Open it with your hands and put 1-2 tablespoons of the filling in the center, close it and continue with the remaining dough.
  • Heat olive oil and fry the piroshki until golden.


Piroshki are traditionally fried so they become more fluffy and crispy. If you don’t want however to fry them, you can bake them in a preheated oven for 15 minutes (the exact time depends on the oven) at 180°C.
