PANCAKES WITH SOUR CREAM AND HERBS
I really like pancakes, with pomegranate, honey or sugar. But savory with sour cream is my big weakness.
This is an old, tasty and inventive recipe. With the few ingredients which they had a home, old housewives made this food for their family. Flour was never missing from the house, the dairies themselves produced goat and sheep milk and there were greens and herbs from the gardens. All that was then a matter of survival and home economics created the inimitable Cretan cuisine.
It is our duty to pass it on to future generations; from grandmother to mother and mother to daughter.
200ml of water or beer
150g of flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
150g sour cream cheese or feta
1 fresh onion
1 teaspoon of dill
1 teaspoon mint
In a bowl mix the flour with the baking powder, pour in the beer (or water) and stir, we should have a thick mix.
Add the sour cream cheese (or feta), onion, dill and mint finely chopped. Season with fresh pepper and stir.
In a pan, put enough olive oil to warm up and pour in spoonfuls of the pancake mix. Fry on both sides until golden.
Remove onto absorbent paper.
