  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup matzo meal
  • 1 medium onion, grated

  1. Beat eggs and combine with cold water, salt, two-thirds of the grated onion and enough matzo meal to make a stiff batter that will drop from the spoon.
  2. Heat shortening or oil in a heavy skillet and add remaining piece of onion for flavor.
  3. Drop batter from spoon to form round cakes and fry until brown before turning over to brown on underside.
  4. Lift out one at a time and drain thoroughly before serving with applesauce mixed with dried fruit compote, cranberry sauce or just plain with meat or cheese dishes.

Yields 12 to 14 pancakes.
