• 2 medium carrots, peeled and grated coarsely
  • 5 small parsnips, peeled and grated coarsely
  • 1/4 cup matzo meal or flour
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon minced chives or scallion
  • 1 teaspoon chopped parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Peanut oil for frying


Toss the carrots and parsnips with the flour. Then add the eggs, chives, parsley, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix well. Heat 1/4-inch of peanut oil in a sauté pan until it is barely smoking. Drop in the batter by tablespoons and flatten. Fry over medium heat until brown on both sides.
