Buckwheat and Quark Fritters. Tatra- kohupiimapallid

tatrapall1 (5)Good dish for “meat free Mondays ” 🙂

Notice, that if you change balance of buckwheat and quark  in favour of buckwheat, you receive more crispy result. Eat warm, because cold dish become crispy, as well (what is not bad at all).

In my picture are balls. But if you prefer to serve them as burger, form loaves.

I’m not a big fan of frying these fritters as I barely have time, plus I get my sufficient amount of fat from other sources anyway. 🙂

Therefore, I’ve adapted the  recipe for baking in the oven.

In case you want to fry on to the skillet: leave dough in to the refrigerator at least for  an 1 hour, before frying.

I decided, that buckwheat flour is too expensive, so I did this by myself from buckwheat groats 🙂 In this case  I suggest to use closed mill: blender or similar. otherwise count with cleaning… 🙂
Groats are so light, that they are jumping out from your mixer:)
