Ingredients 1 kg Farmer’s Cheese 2 eggs 1/2 teaspoon salt to taste 1/4 - 1/2 cup flour* 1/4 cup vegetable oil *less flour is better to use I like to use 1/2 cup of flour as it's less sticky and reminds me of Blini stuffed with Tvorog.
Instructions Crumble the Cheese until it is broken apart into small pieces. Add the eggs and mix throughout using your hands. Add salt, mix throughout. Taste. Add more salt if necessary. Add up to 1/2 cup of flour and mix together. The mixture will be very very sticky. If you add less flour, your Syrniki will have a less dough-y consistency. I like the 1/2 cup mixture, as it reminds me of Blini filled with Cheese . Once mixed, make small balls of Cheese - about 2 tablespoons - rolling them like small meat balls and place on a lightly floured plate or board. (use less flour on the plate than I did in my photos) Heat oil over high heat in a frying pan. Flatten the Tvorog balls using your hands into a patty and place into hot oil. Take care not to have too much flour sticking to the outside of the Cheese balls as this will burn quickly. Fry until golden brown and flip over. Remove from frying pan and place onto a paper towel. Serve hot with sour cream. Enjoy
