  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to the boil.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the grated potatoes, mashed potatoes, egg and onion until well blended. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Combine the flour and baking powder; stir into the potato mixture. The mixture should be thick enough to form into balls.
  3. Process the cottage cheese in a food processor or liquidiser. Stir in the egg and salt. Flatten the balls of dough and place a teaspoon of filling into the centre. Pinch the dough around the filling to seal it in.
  4. Drop the dumplings into rapidly boiling salted water, stir gently once and cook from 5 to 8 minutes. Remove them to a colander and drain. Place in a serving dish, sprinkle generously with browned butter and toss lightly. Serve with soured cream.
