Poppy seed filling for crêpes is absolutely amazing! It’s quite sweet, so we have to be careful not to use too much of it. However, it’s undeniably delicious! On top of that, poppy seeds offer numerous benefits, like protein, fiber, iron, copper, zinc, calcium and more. From a nutritional standpoint, poppy seed filling is better than jam!

This recipe is all about the filling, while you can make any kind of crêpes you like.

First, soak the poppy seeds. Then, cook them in water with sugar for about 30 to 40 minutes. We usually have crêpes on Saturdays, so I soak the poppy seeds overnight on Friday. In the morning, I grind them in a food processor and put them to boil. While the mixture is simmering, I make the crêpes. Everything gets done at the same time, which is really convenient!

SOAKING THE POPPY SEEDS

To soak the poppy seeds, you have two options. The quick method is to pour boiling water over the poppy seeds and let them sit for an hour. Alternatively, you can choose the overnight method by soaking the seeds in room temperature water overnight. Both methods produce excellent results. Once the poppy seeds have swollen, strain them using a fine sieve, discard the water and rinse them under running water.
Next, transfer the poppy seeds to the bowl of a food processor and grind them, or you can grind them in a mortar in batches.

COOKING THE FILLING

Put the ground poppy seeds into a saucepan, add sugar and 450 ml of water, bring to the boil and cook at a medium boil for about 40 minutes. Stir occasionally during the process. By the end of the cooking time, almost all the moisture will have evaporated and you will get a thick poppy seed mixture. Then add ghee oil and stir well. Once the filling has cooled down, you can start stuffing the crêpes.

FILLING THE CREPES

Spread the poppy seed filling in a thin layer over the entire surface of the crêpe. Take two opposite edges of the crêpe and fold them into the center of the crêpe so that the edges touch. Then, roll up the crêpe tightly, starting from the unfolded edge. This way, you'll get a roll with wrapped edges, and the poppyseed filling won't fall out.
