Uniqop’s Advice:

  • Brush the top of Pirashki with yolk and saffron and sparkle some seasons on them before putting in the oven.
  • You can fry them in 5 tablespoon oils instead of baking in the oven, that would take 40 minutes or more.
  • You can use this recipe with different stuffings, such as chicken, sausages, or lunch meat.
  • Prepare some parsley and ketchup and pickles to serve your food with them.
