I heard that Potato Pancakes are very popular in Ukraine. Ukrainian style Potato Pancakes are made with mostly Potatoes. You only need a small amount of Flour. To achieve that, you got to drain the grated Potatoes and remove excess water. You might be interested in my ‘Potato & Smoked Salmon Pancakes’.
10 x 8cm Pancakes
2 medium Potatoes *about 300g
1/4 teaspoon Salt
Ground Pepper as required
3-4 tablespoons Plain Flour OR Self-Raising Flour
*Note: Self-Raising Flour makes fluffy Pancakes
Oil for cooking
Sour Cream to serve *Today I served with ‘Mushroom Sour Cream Sauce’
Garlic & Salt to mix with Sour Cream
- Peel Potatoes and finely grate Potatoes and Onion. Place the grated Potatoes and Onion on a colander, and drain well. I recommend to press down and remove excess water.
- Place the drained grated Potatoes and Onion in a mixing bowl, add Egg, Salt and Pepper, and mix well. Add Flour and mix to make thick batter.
- Heat Oil in a frying pan over medium low heat, cook Pancakes about 8cm in size until both sides are nicely browned and cooked through.
- Serve with Sour Cream mixed with some grated Garlic and Salt. Today I served with Mushroom Sour Cream Sauce.
