Potato Blinis - Small Potato Pancakes
Video Recipe - Boiled potatoes from the day before are fantastic to use in many dishes. Potato Blinis is one of those recipes that I use them for relatively often. Small thick pancakes that are very similar to the american breakfast pancakes. They are equally useful in the sweet and the savory kitchen.
- 4 small potatoes
- 4 eggs, medium
- 4 tbsp sour cream (or whipping cream)
Split the potatoes in the middle.
Grate them finely.
Mix in the eggs.
Mix in the sour cream.
Fry on a frying pan in clarified butter, ghee. lard or tasteless oil until they are nice and brown.
The basic principle is to use 1 small potato, 1 egg and 1 tbsp sour cream or whipping cream. Then you just multiply until you got the amount you need.
Sour cream is better than regular cream as the sourness contributes a lot to the flavor. If you don't have sour cream in the house, regular whipping or heavy cream will do just nicely. You cannot use yogurt or other low fats products as it will make the blinis' seperate..
