Savoury Blini's

chasing, Feb 9, 7:13am
I am wanting a savoury blini recipe and the only one's I can find on the internet are made with buckwheat. If I use the sweet recipe and leave the sugar out will they be alright or does anyone have a recipe for savoury one's?

Chickpea flour-besan (Indian store), water ,olive oil. Mix to a batter and let rest for an hour. They are mini Russian pancakes.

You can also add yeast or egg white whipped to make lighter. Or various herbs in the batter. Try with pureed spinach in batter for green blins. Or Curry-tumeric for yellow, or Smoked paprika and a little tomato paste for red blins.

Blini freeze well. Make extra. Topping can be made well in advance as well. Put together in minutes on a gorgeous big platter, banana leaves, or chopping boards.

The toppings from the links are great. (My guests say so).

Blini are savoury aren't they? The buckwheat ones are more traditional than the ones we can buy here

We made these ones at Christmas - by far the best we've had; really light and fluffy. I think it's the buttermilk that makes all the difference.
