Syrniki (Farmer’s Cheese Russian Pancake)
Here is easy and delicious another breakfast item, again with farmers cheese(Tvorog). In russian its called “Syrniki”. This pancake is very popular here. Commonly prepared in every household. I love to make this because it makes mess free breakfast and tasty too.I also made another breakfast item with farmers cheese – Farmer’s Cheese Cake (Breakfast Cheese Cake) .
I got this recipe from a hotel’s kitchen ;).. yes! When my Brother and family visited us here, we went to Bukhara (a famous historical – tourist destination in Uzbekistan). It was on friday, after checking out from hotel, hubby and bro went for friday prayer. We waited them on lobby. Since kids were there….we don’t want to sit in the car. On that day for breakfast buffet, they also served this tasty pancake. When I got a chance to talk with a lady there, I asked about this. She took me to their kitchen and showed me each ingredients and method. They were very happy and proud that I asked them for the recipe. She also wrote it in a paper in russian :).
It’s not complicated recipe and any starters can make this easy pancake. You can always substitute farmers cheese with ricotta or cottage cheese. Farmer’s cheese texture is much drier than cottage cheese. So make sure to drain of the excess water if it has.
Lets see the recipe……..
