Quark and Potato Fritters. Kohupiima ja kartulikotletid

Great dish for ” Meatless Mondays” 🙂 A  light vegetable fritters for a dinner. Consist of two very important Estonian ingredients: potatoes and quark. Wonderful Carbohydrates and protein combination 🙂

Very easy to make and the flavour is just delicious.

Did you know ?

Estonians, like Mexicans, put sour cream (a version of crème fraîche that contains less fat) on almost everything. And anyone who’s had Mexican food knows it’s not as disgusting as it sounds – it’s actually quite delicious.
