The history of Ukrainian dumplings

The name "dumpling" is derived from the word "cook." And the recipe itself, as it turned out, was taken by the Ukrainians from the Turks. The Turkish dish is called dyush-var. To taste this dish strongly resembles our dumplings, which is probably why Ukrainians liked it so much. However, ours were not taken aback and began to stick other fillings in the dough. So actually our Ukrainian dumplings arose.
After that, dumplings began to cook in Ukraine for every holiday and Sunday. And most interestingly, dumplings were even prepared in order to give the newlyweds a wedding or a pregnant woman.
Dumplings were also prepared as sacrificial food, and brought as a gift to the goddess of water. People believed that dumplings have magical properties. That is why, the girls on Andrey cooked dumplings and performed various ceremonies and fortunetelling on them. One of the most interesting fortunetelling for the girls was: "Dumplings were set in front of the cat, and whose dumpling he eats, that girl should get ready for the wedding, and if she only bites and leaves, it means that the girl is doomed to divorce or loneliness."

Dumplings in the literature

Dumplings take not the last place not only on the table, but also in Ukrainian literature. Many writers loved dumplings so much that they dedicated poems and humoresques to them, and also described them in their works. For example, Gogol in his novel "Viy" describes in detail a dumpling with a diameter of 40 centimeters, the size of a hat. And this is not surprising, because initially, there was no certain size of dumplings, and everyone made those that he considered necessary. The Ukrainian writer Rudansky wrote in his humor:
“Sit Muscovite on the counter,
Prischuryuє och ....
So the nobility: Moskalina,
Varenikov want.
Want b_dniy varenikіv .... ”
As a ritual dish, people ate dumplings during the harvest, and thought that this affects the fate of the crop. That is why in a large number of songs of genius, people remembered dumplings.
