recipe: quick potato pancake.

with one comment

Quick and very satisfying, this is a variation on a traditional Belorussian dish known as draniki.

You’ll need:

  • 2 large or 3 medium potatoes
  • 2-3 eggs (I used 2)
  • oil for frying

Method:

  1. Peel potatoes and grate them into a bowl.
  2. Beat eggs into the potatoes.  Mix thoroughly.
  3. Add salt and pepper to taste.  The original recipe doesn’t call for it, but I added a pinch of salt and pepper anyway.
  4. In a medium skillet, heat oil over medium fire.
  5. Pour potato & egg mixture.
  6. Fry for 10-15 minutes, flip.  (Note:  If you have trouble flipping, you should probably let it cook a bit longer.)
  7. Fry on the other side for 10-15 minutes.
  8. Serve hot, plain or with sour cream.  Can be kept in the fridge and eaten as left-overs for next day.  Better reheat!

I’d say it feeds two kids, or one adult.

I sincerely wanted to take a picture of the entire thing, but brother stole it from under my nose.
