Using a rolling pin, transfer the dough to the mold, cut off the edges of the dough that are hanging down, it will come in handy for decorating the cake on top. Spread the egg white on the base of the pie, this will help keep the pie from getting wet.

Fry the finely chopped onion until transparent and add to the potatoes. Mix well. Salt the minced meat, add black pepper and paprika. Blend the onion in a blender and add to the minced meat, mix well.
