Buckwheat Pancakes {Гречаники} (Grechaniki or Hrechanyky)

Hrechanyky - are a traditional dish of Ukrainian cuisine. Personally, I love em for the following advantages: delicious, fast, a lot. Well, if you have leftover boiled buckwheat and the family don't want to eat it anymore, so these would be perfect to make. You can make it into a vegetarian pancakes just increase mushrooms and it will be a vegetarian dish! I got this recipe from my aunt Sveta:)


2 cups of cooked buckwheat
16 oz mushrooms
1 lb chicken liver or cooked meat then ground 
1 large onion
2 eggs
4 tbs flour
Salt, pepper, coriander and Vegeta (optional)
Oil to saute

 Cook buckwheat from Russian store for around 15 min.

Cut onion and saute until golden brown.

Slice mushrooms and saute until ready. 
Rinse than boil liver for 5 min. 
 Rinse again.
Than transfer it to a food possessor. Mix it well.   
 Add all the rest of the ingredients and mix well.

Roll a pancake into a flour or bread crumbs. 
Cook in oil on med until ready. 
 Enjoy with your favorite salad!


  1. They look so delicious and healthy as well!

    1. Yes, these are really healthy.
      Thanks Angie:)

  2. These pancakes look like very simple recipe to make, except I'm not a fan of chicken liver so probably would use ground meat :).

    1. These are defiantly can be customized to your own taste:)

  3. By "2 cups of cooked buckwheat" you mean two cups when cooked already or 2 cuos of raw buckwheat to cook?
    In any case, will definitely make a try!

  4. there is no "G" -- the dish is Hrechanyky
