Divide the dough in 3-4 equal parts.

Spread each part on the table and cut it in small squares:

In the middle of each square add a teaspoon with meat mixture.

Fold two of the opposite corners and then to the same with the other two, so that the meal is well sealed inside the dough.

Put the dumplings on a sheet of baking paper and keep them in the oven at 180 Celsius degrees for 20-25 minutes or until  a bit golden.

Let them cool!

Separately boil some water and when it starts boiling, add the dumplings (as many as fit into the pot and then repeat the process with the remaining ones). Let them boil for about 10 minutes .

When ready, take the dumplings out and strain them well.

Prepare the white sauce:

Mix the yogurt with the crushed garlic, the pepper and the salt.

Prepare the red sauce:

In a frying pan add the olive oil and let it heat. Add the bell pepper sauce, the salt, the pepper and the chili, as well as the fresh mushrooms cut in small pieces, and let everything simmer for a few minutes.

Spread the dumplings in a pan and cover them with the white sauce, then the red sauce and now they're ready to be served.
