During Passover, you cannot eat leavened bread. This clever recipe, which I learned from my grandmother, gets around that rule by using matzo meal.


2 cups water
½ cup oil
1 tsp. salt
2 cups matzo flour
4 eggs


Put the water, oil and salt in a deep sauté pan and bring to a boil.
Add the matzo flour and mix well.
Remove from the heat and mix in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
Wet your hands and form 20 or so balls.
Put in a baking pan and leave to rest for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F.
Bake for 40 to 50 minutes, until lightly browned.

Makes about 20.


Variation: Add 1 tsp. sugar to the water along with the oil and salt to make sweet rolls.
