Re: russian cuisine

I was in Russia recently and really enjoyed the food. Blini is basically the Russian version of pancakes, traditionally served with sour-cream and jam. I also tried a savoury blini dish that was basically a thin oversized pancake stuffed with a vegetable mix, sides gathered up and tied with a spring onion.

The following version of blini is from a handout our tour-guide gave us:

Russian Blini

Ingredients:
*About 1.5lbs flour
*4-5 cups milk
*3tbs butter
*2 eggs
*2 tbs sugar
*1 tsp salt

Preparation:
1) Take two cups of warm water and add half of the flour and mix until smooth.
2) Add salt, sugar, eggs, melted butter and mix thoroughly
3) Add remaining flour a little at a time and beat until smooth. Gradually add milk, mixing batter completely. The consistency of the batter should be quite thin, but thick enough to coat the back of a spoon
4) Heat up a pan and brush with butter. The traditional way is to dip half a raw potato in melted butter and wipe it on the pan.
5) Add the mixture and swirl the pan to so that a thin layer of batter coats the pan. Flip with the sides begin to brown.
6) Serve with jam, caviar, apple sauce of any other stuffing you wish.
