Step 1: Mix sour cream with wheat farina, let rest until the grits bulge a little.

Step 2: Mix in cottage cheese, egg yolks, salt and egg white foam.

Step 3: Roll out the dough and brush with oil. Stretch and pull as thin as possible. Sprinkle filling on dough, sprinkle with breadcrumbs and roll.
