Ukrainian fucki, Bieszczady fuczki - delicious, easy and quick pancakes

What are fuchki?

Fuczki are Ukrainian sauerkraut pancakes, more commonly known as Bieszczady fuczki. It is a very easy to prepare dish, similar to potato pancakes, except that grated potatoes are replaced with sauerkraut.


For me, these pancakes are a "culinary hit" and I am ashamed to admit that I have not made them before. The more that I have an abundance of sauerkraut every season. Somehow it turned out, but I will catch up, and you do not hesitate as long as I and the fuchs do!

The recipe for fuczki comes from the book Oh! Ukraine Weronika Marczuk which is a combination of descriptions of places, history and talks about Ukraine with recipes for Ukrainian cuisine.


2 cups of sauerkraut

1 onion


6 - 7 tablespoons of type 500 wheat flour

1/2 teaspoon of cumin or cumin

green parsley and cream or natural yoghurt for serving

optional fresh chilli chopped or sauce


Put the cabbage on a board and chop it. Peel the onion, finely chop it or grate it. In a bowl, mix the flour with the egg and a little water, so that a loose dough is formed as for pancakes.

Put the cabbage and onion into the bowl with the dough and mix. We add Roman cumin or cumin. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the pancakes on each side until golden brown.

The pancakes taste delicious when served with cream or yoghurt and sprinkled with greens. If you like spicy dishes, I recommend adding a splash of chili sauce or finely chopped fresh pepper to the cream.
