Potato pancakes are associated with various European cuisines. In Ukraine, they are called “deruny”, in Russia and Belarus “draniki”, and similar recipes can be found in Polish, German, Austrian, and Czech cuisines. Potato pancakes are usually a main meat-free lunch or breakfast dish and taste good topped with sour cream or mushroom sauce. But although they are good enough on their own, they can be also served as a side dish with a vegetable or meat main course.
Here is the recipe!
How to Make Deruny – Ukrainian Potato Pancakes:
- Peel the potatoes and grate them on a small grater.
2. Chop the onion finely and add it to the potatoes. The juice of the onions will keep the potatoes from going brown.
3. Add the flour, egg, and sour cream and mix well. Then add 1 tsp of salt and some black pepper. The batter should still be liquid enough to be ladled easily.
4. Pour some oil into a pan and heat well. Using a spoon, form small, flat rounds of potato mixture and fry them like regular pancakes. When the potatoes are browned on one side, turn them and brown the other. Serve potato deruny with sour cream.
Serve with sour cream and apple sauce. Enjoy!
