Matzo Meal Substitute For Matzo Balls?

animatrixie | Jun 25, 2013 02:49 PM

Hey all! I live in a country that doesn't have matzo available in any form, but I'd like to make something getting as close to matzo balls as possible (I don't keep kosher, I'd just like to make some for soup!).

When you break it down, dumplings are just made of flour and water, right? Do you think just crushing up a bunch of saltine crackers would make a good substitute for matzo meal?....Is there a way to break it down even to the barest of basics and just use flour to simulate a good, fluffy, eggy matzo ball?

I'd love some help with this!
