This recipe for Polish rice pancakes or placuszki z ryżu (plah-TSOOSH-kee z RIH-zhoo) fries up crispy and light and, like potato pancakes, can be eaten as a savory vegetarian or fasting side dish or main meal with sour cream or with sugar.

What You'll Need

  • 3 cups room-temperature cooked rice
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

How to Make It

  1. In a medium bowl, combine eggs, milk, and salt until well mixed. Add rice and mix well. Add flour and mix until well incorporated.
  2. If serving the pancakes as a savory dish, fry in shortening or oil. If serving with sugar, fry in butter. Portion out 2 tablespoons of batter, spreading to a 3- to 4-inch pancake.
