When I was talking with my Mom on the phone, we were discussing Easter and what we wanted to make for it. She said, she wanted this year’s Easter to be a real fiesta, contrary to the political and social situation in our part of the world. Once I saw pork belly at the butchers, I decided to make her a surprise and make Roast Rolled Pork Belly. I am so sure she is going to love it. We had it store bought from time to time, this time I made it myself.
Kartacze – Polish Potato Dumplings are made of raw potatoes with small (or non) addition of cooked ones. They are regional dish in Podlasie – North- Western part of Poland. Go to Białystok to try the best Kartacze ever:) Or make them yourself:)
In my family house we called them Kołduny, so the naming may vary:) My Grandma and Mum were born and raised on the present territory of Belarus, but back then it was Poland, language and cuisines mixed. Kartacze can also be called Cepeliny (dish with Lithuanian origins).
There is a range of Polish potato dumplings, they vary in size and ingredients, whether cooked or raw potatoes are used, what kind of flour is used and is it served as a side dish or a main course.
