Cooking Features

The process of making pancakes from dough on matsoni is not complicated, but has its own characteristics. To obtain the best result, the culinary specialist needs to know and take into account several important points.

  • Matsoni for fritters can be used with different fat content and different degree of freshness, but still not clearly missing. The consistency of matsoni depends on how much flour is added to the dough. The dough should turn out like a village sour cream.
  • Flour for pancakes must be of high quality. The second-rate product gives the product a specific taste and unappetizing grayish tint. The difference in price between the flour of the highest, first and second grade is not so great that it was reasonable to save on this product.
  • Dough on yoghurt can be made not only from wheat flour, but also from rice, buckwheat, corn, as well as with the addition of fruits and vegetables. The organoleptic qualities of the finished products will also largely depend on their quality.
  • Flour of any kind and grade must be sieved before combining with other ingredients. The main purpose of this manipulation is not to rid the product of small litter and insect larvae, although this is also important. The main task is to saturate the flour with oxygen. After sifting, it becomes easy, it is easier to combine it with other components, preventing the formation of lumps. From the dough, mixed with such flour, baking is more airy.
  • For fluffiness, fritters in dough for them, if it is not yeast, add baking powder. In its quality can act soda, which is usually quenched with vinegar. When preparing dough on yogurt or other fermented milk products, usually do without vinegar. However, to avoid soda flavor, soda in the dough should be put no more than indicated in the recipe.
  • Fry pancakes in a hot pan, covered with butter. Spread the dough with a tablespoon, periodically dipping it into cold water to prevent the dough from sticking. Between portions of the dough leave a distance of at least a centimeter, otherwise the pancakes stick together and become ugly.
  • To make the pancakes more lush, they need to be cooked over low heat under the lid. The first side is fried for 3-4 minutes, the second - 2-3 minutes, but the exact time depends on the intensity of the flame, so you need to be guided by the state of the fritters.
