Fluffy Crepes with flaxseed (Katmi)

I love breakfasts and today I'm presenting to you one more option for a delicious breakfast. This time you can try those incredible "Katmi", they are a fluffier version of regular crepes, and this time I've added some flaxseed flour to make them more wholesome.

Katmite is a dish from the Strandzha region, the Rhodopes, and other regions of Bulgaria, similar to pancakes or gozleme. The name is of Central Asian origin (in Kazakh: қattama; in Kyrgyz: kattama, qɑttɑmɑ, katlama in Turkish: katmer).

They are made from leavened rare dough with yeast, baked on a special flat clay vessel - sach. After baking, they are smeared with butter, lard, or oil according to local customs or possibilities. The characteristic of the katmi, which distinguishes them from the pancakes, is their greater thickness and the many bubbles in them.

Today, cheese, ham, jam, etc. are added to katmi, depending on preferences. *source
