COOKING

In the following recipe,
softened matzah is used as
wrapper for cooked chicken. It
would probably be best to use
plain or whole wheat matzah,
as egg matzah may fall apart.
MATZAH-CHICKEN
TURNOVERS
"A popular Israeli dish,
served with herbed mayon-
naise."
5 matzah
1 large onion
2 tbsp. oil
1% cups ground cooked
chicken
3 eggs, divided
2 tbsp. matzah meal
Salt and pepper
Oil for frying
Sprinkle the matzah with
water and wrap them with a
damp towel. Let stand for 10
minutes. Chop the onion and
saute in the oil until golden.
Add the chicken and cook for
10 minutes. Remove from
heat. Add two eggs and the
matzah meal and season to
taste. Cut each matzah in
half. Near the narrow edge of
each half, put a tablespoon of
the chicken mixture and roll
the matzah carefully. Dip
each roll in the remaining
beaten egg and fry in hot oil

or margarine until golden-
brown on both sides. Yield: 10
turnovers.

MATZAH-WINE ROLLS
"My mother's version of
this popular Eastern Euro-
pean Jewish dessert!"
8 matzah
1 cup sweet wine
8 oz. semi sweet chocolate
% cup milk
2 tbsp. cocoa
1 cup sugar
3 tbsp. brandy
1 tsp. instant coffee powder
2 sticks margarine
Crumble the matzah and
soak in the wine. Melt the
chocolate with milk, cocoa
powder, sugar, brandy and cof-
fee over very low heat.
Remove from heat and add
the margarine. Stir until

melted. Add the matzah to
the chocolate mixture. Divide
the mixture into two halves.
Shape each half into a long
roll and wrap tightly in
aluminum foil. Refrigerate
overnight, remove the
aluminum foil and slice. Place
in paper petit fours (cupcake
papers).

BARANATZA-
WINE PUDDING
"A dark, candy like sweet
from the Sephardic cuisine.
This particular version comes
from Rhodes!"
1 cup dark apricots
1 cup dark raisins
1% cups sweet wine
6 eggs
1 cup sugar
% cup honey
1% cups matzah meal
1% cups chopped walnuts
Soak the apricots and the
raisins overnight in the wine.
Grind the apricots and the
raisins with the grating disc
of a food processor or with a
meat grinder. Beat the eggs
and mix with all the ingre-
dients. Grease a 13 x 9 inch
pan. Spread the mixture in-
side evenly and bake at 325 °
for 11/2 hours. Allow to cool
and cut into diamonds or
squares.
