The foods of Belarus

Draniki (potato pancakes) is the most typical dish found in Belarus cuisine and the most popular. Draniki’s main ingredients are grated potatoes and onions though some recipes also include meat, bacon, mushrooms and cheese. They’re generally served with sour cream.
Another famous Belarusian dish is kletski – boiled flour balls filled with meat. This dish is similar to Polish pierogi and Russian pelmeni, but kletski are bigger and crescent shaped. Kletski can be eaten on their own with roasted onions and sour cream or can be added to soup.
Borscht: Beetroot is the main ingredient in Belarus borscht as well as meat, potatoes, cabbage, carrots and onions. Belarusian borscht is not as fatty and spicy as the Ukrainian version and has more vegetables than the Polish version. Belarus restaurants typically serve borscht with sour cream and dark bread.
