But it can be processed into dumplings. Moreover, it will turn out incredibly tasty. First, thoroughly rinse the potatoes. We collect water in a pan and put all the potatoes into it, put on fire. Potatoes need to be cooked no more than 15 minutes from the moment of boiling. Thus, it must be brought to a semi-readiness. It should already soften, but not boil.

At the same time, it must be covered with a clean kitchen towel or napkin. After that, divide the mass into three equal parts. We roll each part into a uniform sausage.
