Matzoth Kleis, No. 2


  • 6 matzoth
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cooking-spoons of chicken fat
  • 3 onions
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • dash of pepper and ginger
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped parsley
  • matzoth meal


Soak the matzoth in boiling water a minute, then drain every drop of water out of them. Press through sieve. Fry onions in the chicken fat, and when a light brown, put the matzoth in the spider with the fat and onions to dry them. Add salt, pepper and ginger and chopped parsley. Add the the yolks of eggs and beat all this together a few minutes; last, add the well-beaten whites. Form into balls by rolling into a little matzoth meal. Drop in boiling salt water and boil fifteen minutes; drain and pour over them hot fat with an onion, cut fine and browned.
