Mix all ingredients thoroughly. To make the dumplings as tasty as possible, use homemade cottage cheese of medium fat and preferably fresh.
Divide the previously prepared dough into two, roll each part separately into a thin layer and cut out circles using a regular glass.
Place the curd filling in the center of each circle, about 1 tablespoon, taking into account the size.
Pulling up one edge, connect to the other, squeeze tightly and shape the dumplings in a way convenient for you.
Pour water into a saucepan, add salt and bring to a boil. Boil the dumplings in small portions in bubbling water for 5-8 minutes, until they float to the surface.
