The jam must be thrown in a colander to remove the juice from the cherries. Sprinkle fresh cherries with sugar in a colander. The berries should be as dry as possible.
  2. To prepare the dough, take sifted wheat flour and pour vegetable oil and hot saltwater into it in a thin stream, mix with a spoon. Knead the dough well with your hands for at least 15 minutes. Let the dough rest in a dish covered with a towel for about 20 minutes.
  3. Divide the dough into several pieces. Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough approximately 5 mm thick. Using a culinary mold, make circles with a diameter of 5-7 cm or form a base for the filling from the dough with your hands.
