Also made potato pancakes from Belarus known as draniki. There were a bunch of differences between these and the traditional Jewish latke I normally make. 1. they grate the potato super fine. 2. They do not squeeze the juice out of the potatoes so you have a mixture that is the consistency of apple sauce. 3. They also stuff them with meat…which was interesting but more work than it was worth. You can make a meat or vegetarian version of these. I personally found that it was not worth the time or effort to stuff them with meat. It did not really change the taste much, as you don’t use a lot of meat, and it was more work than it was worth.
