Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

First of all, mix eggs, salt, sugar, cheese, and ¾ cup of flour in a large bowl.

Step 2

Then take a small bowl and add baking soda and vinegar to it. Mix it very well. After mixing, add it into the cheese mixture.

Step 3

Then use an electric mixer to mix it. Mix it for 4 to 5 minutes. You can use a hand mixer if you do not have an electric mixer. Then add the raisins and stir. Try to remove all the cheese clumps, but if you fail to remove all of them, leave it and move to the next step.

Step 4

After that, take a large skillet and heat it over medium heat. Add 2 to 3 tablespoons of extra light olive oil.

Step 5

Then take a small bowl and add half a cup of flour to it. And add a heaping tablespoon of cheese mixture into the flour. Now sprinkle a little bit of flour on the cheese mixture. Then mold it into a cutlet shape and remove excess flour. Make Syrniki of the remaining material.

Step 6

When the olive oil becomes hot in the skillet, start placing Syrnikis one by one into the hot oil. After placing them, cook each side for about 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown.

Step 7

Your Syrinki is ready to serve. Place them into a plate and serve with powdered sugar, sour cream, or fruits. Enjoy it.
