North Karelia is the birthplace of the delicious Karelian pasties. Although they are eaten throughout Finland, the Joensuu version, spread with real butter, is the genuine article. Butter, often mixed with boiled egg (munavoi), is spread over the hot pasties before eating. They are eaten for breakfast as well as snacks. Following are two versions, with rice being the more traditional/popular variation.
