Anyway, this is a common dish in Belarusian cuisine called Draniki (potato pancakes).


I like how these video recipes are made (this one and Chaladnik).

In Czech Republic there is something similar to Draniki. We call it bramboráky (brambora = potato) and in addition to your recipe we put in that potato "dough" also milk, caraway seeds, marjoram and garlic. You can it it alone or with sauerkraut and smoked meat:-) I think that other west slavs have also their variants.
