Perogies are a traditional polish dish. For this vegan take on the dish I decided to mix it up and try my hand at an Indian inspired version. I briefly froze each dumpling after I created it, this helped me finish them all before I started steaming them. You will notice that my folding abilities are not the strongest, but the flavor is good! Please feel free to use another kind of chutney if you do not have winter chutney on hand. I think even a good strong duck sauce would work if you can’t find anything more suitable. Feel free to play with your flavors, and taste the mixture as you go. One word to the wise- remember once you steam the dumplings the potato mixture will almost melt, so don’t let the starting texture freak you out! —cdesimone

With your finger or a spoon create and indent in the center of the mixture.
Place ½ teaspoon of chutney in the center of the potato mixture.
Moisten the edge of the wrapper with a few drops of water. Fold the dumpling. (I made some of them like a egg roll and other I made into small packages or bundles like prerogies)
