Take a roomy enameled bowl through a fine sieve and place 2 cups flour. Add a teaspoon of salt, vegetable oil and constantly stirring the whole mass of hands (step by step add water). Stir sticky mass crease about 15 minutes, until smooth and leave to stand for half an hour.

Lower khinkali one by one, in the rapidly boiling water and let's not stick to the bottom of the pan. Boil khinkali be from 10 to 15 minutes, depending on volume.

Eat khinkali to the following rule:
Khinkali take hold of the "tail", holding with other hand and a bag, first drink the broth, hot, fragrant, delicious! And then eat the rest of the khinkali, leaving the tail on the plate.
