Blini pancakes

Traditional Russian Blini Crepes are made with water or milk that is boiled just before baking them in the traditional Russian oven (to this day the bliny cooking process is referred to as baking in Russian, even though currently it is pan-fried almost universal, like pancakes). Blintzes (blinchiki in Russian, considered to be a borrowed dish) is made from flour, milk, and eggs) and is almost identical to French pancakes. All kinds of flour can be used to make bliny: from wheat and buckwheat to oatmeal and millet, although wheat is by far the most popular. Blini was popularized in the United States by Jewish immigrants as blini is a popular dish in Jewish cuisine. While they are not associated with any specific religious rite in Judaism, blintzes that are stuffed with a cheese filling and then fried in oil are served on holidays such as Chanukah (the oil figures in the Chanukah miracle story) and Shavuot (when dairy dishes are traditionally served) . Buckwheat blini is part of traditional Russian cuisine, almost forgotten during the times of the Soviet Union. They remain extensive in Ukraine where they are known as hrechanyky and Lithuania Dzukija region, where buckwheat is produced, the only region in the country. Traditionaly is called Lithuanian: Grikiu’s Blynai. Buckwheat blini is part of traditional Russian cuisine, almost forgotten during the times of the Soviet Union. They remain extensive in Ukraine where they are known as hrechanyky and Lithuania Dzukija region, where buckwheat is produced, the only region in the country. Traditionaly is called Lithuanian: Grikiu’s Blynai. Buckwheat blini is part of traditional Russian cuisine, almost forgotten during the times of the Soviet Union. They remain extensive in Ukraine where they are known as hrechanyky and Lithuania Dzukija region, where buckwheat is produced, the only region in the country. Traditionaly is called Lithuanian: Grikiu’s Blynai.
