The Carelian people are of Finnish origin but living in north-eastern Russia. The dish is the perfect antidote to freezing weather.
Start by preparing the rice porridge.
Cook rice in water until the water has absorbed. Add milk and salt. Let simmer until the porridge is cooked, for about 30-40 minutes. Add some butter.
Prepare the dough and pies.
Mix the ingredients, knead and form the dough into a long roll. Divide it into small pieces and, using a rolling pin, roll them into thin, oval crusts. Fill the centre of each crust with 1.5 -2 tbs of porridge. Fold the edges of the crusts and pinch tightly with your fingers. Bake pies in 225°C oven for 15–20 minutes and dip them in butter-milk mixture. Let sit for a while before serving.
