Deruny (Potato Pancakes) With Vegetables

Today we are going to cook deruny or vegetable flapjacks with potato, carrot, pepper, and spring onion. The usual potato flapjacks get a more bright taste and color due to the usage of these root vegetables. As the result the dish is juicy, crispy and very tasty.


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 carrot
  • 4 potatoes
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1/2 bulb onion
  • 6 tsp sour cream
  • 1/2 bunch of spring onions
  • vegetable oil (for frying)
  • salt – to taste


Wash vegetables, peel a carrot and grate it. Slice a bell pepper finely, transfer to a bowl. In 15 minutes, drain the excess water that accumulates in the bowl. Chop spring onions.

Peel potatoes and a bulb onion. Grate the ingredients finely. Salt the gratings and let sit for 10 minutes. Squeeze out the liquid and pat dry the mass. Add 1 tbsp of sour cream, flour and eggs. Adjust salt and stir everything until well combined.

Pour vegetable oil in a frying pan and preheat it. Spoon the prepared potato mass into the pan and flatten it with a help of a spoon to get the form of a pancake.

Cook the pancake until crisp and nicely browned on both sides. Repeat the cooking process until you use the remaining mixture. Serve the vegetable pancakes with sour cream.

Enjoy your meal!
