Cottage cheese filled Lithuanian potato cakes

The photo isn’t mine. This Lithuanian lady is living in India. Her potato cakes are the closest I could find on the web to the recipe I have. I still plan to make these. I’ll take photos when I do. Hopefully mine will look as delicious as hers do :)

Lithuanian recipe: Varðke ádaryti bulviniai pyragëliai
These cakes are served with tea.

10 potatoes, cooked and riced
3 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons flour
200 g (3/4 cup) dry cottage cheese
1 onion, finely chopped
salt to taste; oil for frying

Make a pliable dough with riced potatoes, onion, flour, eggs and salt. Mix all ingredients and knead well. Make flat rounds from potato dough, fill with 1 tablespoon cottage cheese, fold over and form oblong buns. Fry in hot oil until nicely browned.
