Today we present you one of our favorite Lithuanian dishes – Potato pancakes or Bulviniai blynai in Lithuanian. There are many different variations of this dish in different countries but this is how we make it. It’s simple but very tasty.

They are very good with mushroom or minced meat  filling as well 😉

You will need:

  • 1 kg potatoes
  • 2 eggs
  • salt
  • we like to use ‘All purpose seasoning’ here or in Lithuania we have ‘Potato seasoning’ that we use (it contains: salt, garlic, paprika, mustard, sugar, onion, turmeric, celery root, black pepper, parsley)
  • oil for frying

To start peel the potatoes

Grate them, watch your fingers 🙂

Add the seasoning, eggs and salt  Mix well. Heat the oil in the pan, spoon the mixture and fry the pancakes on medium heat until cooked throughout.

After one pan is cooked put it in the oven set on low heat  (around 60C) just to keep the pancakes hot while you cook the rest.

Serve with sour cream and enjoy!!!!
