Nalistniki are pancakes with sweet or savoury filling, known in Russian, Ukrainian, Belarusian and Polish cuisines. Nalistniki are stuffed with jam, mushrooms, meat, berries, homemade cottage cheese, raisins, boiled cereals, fish caviar, etc. In some cases, they are served with sauce (sour cream, jam, honey, mushroom, sour cream-and-meat, etc.). Since the main thing in nalistniki is the filling, pancakes for them are made large, thin and almost tasteless. The filling in nalistniki is placed in the middle and covered with free edges of the pancake.
