Which flour would you recommend to make this recipe gluten free? :)

vegelicacy 12 November 2014
Hey Karina! Thank you for the question! Well, the easiest way is to buy ready GF flour mix in a shop, just make sure it's suitable for home-made pasta and ravioli. Otherwise, I would suggest using 1 ¾ cup of rice flour + 2 teaspoons of xanthan gum to substitute 2 cups of regular flour. Hope this can help you!

Thank you ☺️ but what exactly is xantam gum? Never heard of it before..

It's a thickening powder which is widely used for gluten-free baking.

Would guar gum work? I can't tolerate xanthan gum but these look GORGEOUS!

Hello, I need to prepare food for my kids' geography club meeting tomorrow - they studied Siberia. I am going to make these. Are they ever served with sauce in Siberia or just a sprinkle of pepper? Thanks for the recipe!!! -Bonnie

Hello Bonnie! Oh, I love the idea of cooking traditional food for learning geography! Traditionally pelmeni are served with sourcream or just with a sprinkle of oil. Good luck!

Hi,I am originally Russian.In my family we always mixed tomato ketchup with mayo,that is quite popular sauce for pelmeni as well as "Hrenovaya zaprava"-fresh,skinned tomato puree mixed with garlic and spicies.
