Farmers Cheese Fritters {Sirniki}

Serves: 2-3


250 g farmers cheese
1 egg
2 tbs sugar
3 tbs semolina
2-3 tbs oil for frying


In a bowl mix farmers cheese and egg, use fork to break up farmers cheese and make the mixture more even and fine.

Add semolina and sugar, mix all. Leave to stand for 20-30 minutes for semolina to plump up a little.

Heat up non-stick frying pan over medium heat, add 2-3 tbs of oil. 

In a plate put more semolina. With a spoon scoop out some farmers cheese mixture and put it into the plate. Roll into a ball then flatten into a patty. Repeat with the rest of the mixture. You should get about 8 patties. 

When the oil is hot, carefully put patties in the frying pan. Fry them until they are golden on both sides.
Best served warm, with a dollop of sour-cream and dusted with powdered sugar. Also can be served with jam, marmalade or condensed milk.
