Tsibriki (Tsybriki) is a national Belarussian cuisine dish. Its made from grated potatoes rolled in flour and sauteed in lard. Belarusian cuisine is famous for dishes from potato and Tsibriki is one of them. This dish is similar to Tater Tot or Potato Latkes (potato pancakes), the ingredients are almost the same, but the taste is different.
Usually they’re served with sour cream and milk. I still add salt to the potatoes and a little bit garlic to the sour cream. My family loves tsibriki with fried onions and bacon – always a classic combination with any potato dish. Lard may be replaced with vegetable or olive oil. Tsibriki are cooked very simply and what is more important, quickly. Just a few minutes and this traditional Belarusian dish is ready!
