My Russian husband loves Pelmini, the Russian style ravioli. 
It is something between ravioli and dumpings filled with seasoned minced pork. 
This time, I revived pelmini with some love infusion. 
The pink dough was made with beetroot to enhance Russian essence.  No artificial colouring was involved.
For the heart shape I crafted a ceramic mould and pressed the filling between two sheets of beetroot dough. 

Instead for minced pork, you can fill any such as cheese and spinach paste. 
By using the ceramic mould methodology, you can make any shape of ravioli such as Christmas trees and bells. 

Step 1: Making Loveoli Mold

Prepare two different sizes of heart template and clay that we can oven-make to set. 
Fill the larger template with clay and place the smaller template in the centre to make a heart-shaped pit where the stuffing will go. 

Make sure the surface of the outer heart shape is flat and level so it will seal two layers of dough completely when pressed.

Place the clay in oven and bake it as directed. 

FIMO clay requires baking for 30 mins at 110C.
<p>Imagine these filled with fresh raspberries!</p>
I have got to make these, my toddler is weird about trying vegetables and this is way to get more in her diet, thank you! :)
Cool idea; and nice instructable. I like how you showed everything. Even how to make the heart shaped clay-mold.
Oooh! Sounds tasty! Does the beetroot add taste to the dough or is it just for color?
Thank you! Thank you! It was delicious. <br>In this amount, the beetroot was only for colour. If you add more beetroot and less egg, might get somewhat sweet taste of beetroot. Also, it is up to the the contents of stuffing, I guess.
This looks very good! I will share this with my new daughter in law! I love the heart shape with this dish!
Thank you! The heart shape was very efficient to attach two layers. It was also very fun!
This looks great. Thanks for sharing!
