  1. In a bowl, combine both flours with the yeast and salt. Add the carrot purée, carrot juice and egg yolk. Whisk until smooth. Cover the bowl with a damp cloth or plastic wrap. Let the batter sit for 1 hour in a warm, humid spot or until doubled in volume.
  2. In another bowl, whisk the egg white until stiff peaks form. With a whisk, fold the egg white into the batter. The batter will be sticky.
  3. Heat a lightly buttered non-stick skillet over medium heat. For each blini, pour 2 tsp (10 ml) of the batter into the skillet to form 1 1/4-inch (3 cm) round pancakes. To get perfectly round blinis, even out the circles of batter with the back of a lightly oiled spoon. Cook 6 blinis at a time for 1 to 2 minutes or until small bubbles form on the surface. Flip the blinis over and cook for another minute or until golden. Set the blinis aside on a plate and repeat with the remaining batter. Add a small amount of butter to the skillet between each batch of pancakes.


  1. Garnish the blinis with the sour cream, fish eggs, grated carrot and chives.


Use homemade or store-bought carrot purée, which can often be found in the baby food aisle of your grocery store.
