Deep Fried Matzo, Mushrooms and Veggies Balls


This dish is a nice alternative to Hanukah latkes and can be served as Hors d’oeuvres, a snack or as a First Course with a hot bowl or a cup of Golden Chicken broth or any other soup. It takes a little more time and work then traditional cooked matzo balls but your efforts will be repaid when you taste these delicious fried balls. Inspired by a similar recipe from Williams-Sonoma Kitchen and then adjusted to my taste and also changed the assembling technique.

What you will need

3 tablespoons plus 1/2 cup canola oil, plus more for frying

1 cup Crimini or any mushrooms of your choice, finely chopped

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

1/2 medium onion, diced

1 carrot, grated

1 celery stalk, thinly sliced

1 tablespoon potato starch

1/2 cup cold chicken stock, preferably homemade

8 large eggs, separated

2 tablespoons seltzer water

2 cups matzo meal (not cake matzo meal)

2 tablespoons fresh parsley plus 1tablespoon dill, chopped
