Chicken Pelmeni product reviews

Proud to promote NZ productsA plate of pelmeni might not look like much to the untrained eye, but it forms the heart of Russian cuisine and culture. It's served in every Russian restaurant, cooked in homes across all of the country and every family likes to think it has its own special recipe.

So what is pelmeni? Basically, it's a Russian dumpling consisting of a filling that is wrapped in thin dough. The fillings differ but essentially they are minced beef, pork or lamb, often in combinations, and seasoned with herbs, onion, and black pepper. Chicken pelmeni are also available. So what makes pelmeni unique? You'll simply have to experience them yourself to find out.

Ingredients: Chicken, flour, egg, water, onion, garlic, salt, pepper.

Well, these dumpling tasted much better than the beef ones, both because the meat was good, and because the dumpling got fried this time. There was still a hint of the taste I had from the beef dumplings, but this time the pasta was nice and solid, and didn't feel all slimy. They went well with a salad, so I would prefer them as part of a meal, not have a whole bowl of them AS a meal, that's a bit over the top.

If I had the chance to have some of these dumpling again, I would say yes, they were good enough to reach that level. I certainly like these fried after being boiled, not just being plain boiled. This is something that would be good for the whole family to eat, no matter what the age is. They were a bit on the small size, they could get away with being a little larger, I think.

They have a good price, it fits with the value well, in fact, I think they might have been imported from Russia, so 10 dollars is and awesome price, especially since you get half a kilo of them in a pack! Since they were fried, I'm going to give these dumplings a 10 out of 10, they filled me up, and I was able to eat my portion without issues. Enjoy!

Having chosen the 'traditional' Russian cooking style with the Pork & Beef Pelmeni and not finding the results quite as pleasing as hoped, I thought I would do them *my* way and see how it went. I am so glad I did!

First, taking the frozen Pelmeni and a suitable pot of lightly salted water with a couple of tablespoons of olive oil - to help prevent them sticking as they started to float - I popped them on to boil. Meanwhile, I crushed some fresh garlic and sliced it finely, chopped half a large onion, and began to gently sautee them. When the Pelmeni had all started floating, indicating they were almost cooked, I drained them well, and added them to the frypan and brought the heat up to full, frying them rapidly to a crispy golden finish.

These were then served with a fresh green salad of my own recipe, topped with tasty cheese cubes (although some croutons would have also gone a treat) and drizzled liberally with Pepler's Black Raspberry Vinaigrette. For something a little different, I also tried my own dressing on a small portion, made with tartare sauce, light mayo and cider vinegar, with some freshly ground black pepper and a touch of sea salt. Bopth dressing did good things for the salad, and GREAT things with the Pelmeni, though I think I prefer my dressing for the Pelmeni as the creamy texture really offset the crispness of the fried pasta.

The 500g bag - available at selected quality outlets such as 'Nosh' - should serve 2 adults well. With the salad, we made it stretch to cover two hungry adults and 2 ravenous children. Even Picky Mr3 loved the Pelmeni this time around, stuffing whole ones in his tiny maw and chomping on them with great glee. This is, for me, an indication of amazing quality, since he is the fussiest kid I have ever come across!

Overall, this has to be my favourite dumpling style yet, and one I plan to have ready at all times in the freezer. So thankful we have a Nosh outlet here in town!

Like the Beef and Pork variety these dumplings were of a smaller size than their Chinese counterparts that most people are familiar with. I must admit in sampling these I was expecting a bit of a flavour kick biting into them, but alas I found them to be a little on the bland side.

Simple to prepare by boiling in water and added stock should you choose, these Chicken Pelmeni are a quick and easy meal and as per the instructions on the pack, can be consumed with your choice of just about any sauce.

While I would purchase these again, I must admit that if I was on the hunt for pre-prepared dumplings, that I would instead go for the Chinese variety that we are more used to, as my first preference.

I was lucky enough to try both these and the beef & pork flavour, it was good to get a comparison on both. Rather than cook them two different ways, we chose to boil these in chicken stock until they floated (a sign dumplings are done). As per the other flavour, I did notice that these are smaller in size than I was expecting.

I was also disappointed that the minced meat was more of a sausage meat like consistency than actual minced chicken or chicken pieces. I also have to admit to noticing very little flavour difference between the two flavours we tried. Again however, these were a hit with the previously "noses turned up" kids so I count that as a great success!

Overall, if I saw these on special in the supermarket I may very well get them again but I have to admit they wouldn't be my first preference.
