On my first post about Pirashki, I talked about my Russian friend Mela. When we used to work together she used to bring Pirashki to work every so often and she used to purchased a “vegetarian” version just for me since at the time I was a pesco-vegetarian. I recently decided to replicate the delicious cabbage Pirashki that she used to bring to work.

I absolutely love Pirashki and it’s not terribly difficult to make.

The timing for this post could not be any more opportune since the Persian Food Bloggers are once again collaborating on a collective post. Our theme this time is a Persian Summer Picnic.  It only made sense for me to post this recipe as my contribution to our virtual picnic!

So far these Pirashki have been well received and enjoyed by a good number of people. A couple of words of advice. I have made these with packaged shredded cabbage and carrots out of convenience. However, I find that the flavor is much much better when I shredded the cabbage and carrot myself at home.
