Varenyky (Ukrainian: варе́ники, singular "варе́ник") are stuffed dumplings of unleavened dough which are widespread in East Slavic (Ukrainian, Belarusian), Moldovan and Baltic (Latvian, Lithuanian) cuisines... They are traditionally associated with the Ukrainian cuisine and considered a national dish of Ukraine.
Varenyky are boiled or sometimes steamed. The name varenyk means literally "a boiled thing". The word is cognate with the adjective "boiled" (Ukrainian: варений).
