- For the filling
- 1 Red Bell pepper
- 2 scallions
- 2 garlic
- 300 grams Feta
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon sharp ground paprika
For the dough: mix ingredients with 150 ml (approximately 5 ounces) of lukewarm water and knead until smooth, adding a little water or flour as needed. The dough should be smooth and elastic. Cover and let rest at room temperature about 30 minutes.
For the filling: rinse peppers and scallions and peel garlic. Chop all very finely. Crush feta and add to vegetables. Stir in egg. Season with salt, pepper and 1 teaspoon paprika.
Roll dough until thin on lightly floured surface and cut into squares about 4 cm (approximately 1 1/2-inch). Spread 1/2 teaspoon filling in the middle, fold in corners to form an envelope and pinch into a star shape.
Bring a pot of water to a rolling boil and let dumplings cook for about 4 minutes.
For the sauce and garnish: mix yogurt with lemon juice and add a little salt. Stir remaining paprika into melted butter.
Drain dumplings, top with yogurt sauce and garnish with paprika butter. Serve on warmed plates.
