Meat Patties Recipe

Back to childhood times street foods : meat patties. Fried and insanely delicious crispy and soft dough filled with spiced seasoned ground meat. As simple as that. These fried meat patties remain one of my all time favorite street foods, as I go back to the times when we were in school or even when I was in university, the “ Peroshki “ stands existed almost on every other block. You could smell that fried oil scent from miles and it’ll make you stop by to grab one hot meat pattie , right out of the sizzling oil, wrapped in tiny wax paper, and most importantly ,we’d sprinkle it with spiced salt , eat it within minutes and be full for the rest of the day. At least that’s how I remember .

Let’s try my version of that classic street food and see how you like it.
