Belarus - Draniki

Updated: Jun 15, 2021

A Belarusian spin on the oh-so-popular latkes

Aneri's note: Admittedly, I do not know much about Belarus. Eastern Europe is a bit of a blind spot for me. But the food is stellar!



Difficulty level (1-10): 3

You may recognize Draniki as potato latkes. They are essentially the same, the only difference is instead of shredding the potatoes, you blend it! Super easy and a nice healthy alternative to pancakes.


Potato - 4, chopped and peeled

Egg - 1

Onion - 1, roughly chopped

Garlic clove - 1

Flour - 2 TB

Salt - to taste

Pepper - to taste

Oil - 1/4 cup

Sour cream for the topping

1. Combine potatoes, onion, egg, garlic, flour, salt and pepper into a food processor and grind until it forms a batter.

2. Add a bit of oil to a frying pan and add a large spoonful of the batter. Brown on each side for 3-4 min, covered with a lid.

3. Serve with sour cream and enjoy!

This recipe was sourced from Cookpad,, and let the baking begin.
