Lithuania: Potato Pancakes (Bulviu Blynai)


2 lbs. potatoes
1/4 cup potato starch (1/2 cup flour can be substituted)
1 small onion
2 eggs
Salt, pepper
Oil for frying


Traditionally, the potatoes are peeled and grated and the onion chopped fine.
Then, the egg/salt/pepper are mixed in.

Once you have the batter prepared, heat your griddle or frying pan. Add a
generous amount of cooking oil.

Drop by spoons-full or pour pancake mixture on the hot griddle. Fry until
golden on both sides.

Place cooked blynai on paper towels or newspaper briefly to absorb the excess
grease. Serve with a dollop of sour cream and/or applesauce.
