Preparing potato pancakes with machanka is very simple. Machanka - comes from the word "dunk". There are many recipes for this sauce. There is a purely meat machanka made from sausages and bacon. And there is dairy made from cottage cheese with sour cream. I suggest something in between. I must say right away that the dish is very high in calories and from the point of view of modern trends, not very healthy. But if you love him, then occasionally you can afford it.
