Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
In the Fox kitchens Kotleten were a staple. From these vegetable kotleten evolved. Left over veggies were chopped or mashed, mixed with egg to bind them, matzo meal to absorb excess moisture, minced onion, salt and pepper. dropped into more matzo meal to coat them and fried. They were made of peas and carrots, green beans, spinach, cauliflower, canned salmon and even mashed potatoes, which were then called knishes.
These were the genesis of my Lentil Pancakes with Yogurt Sauce. The sauce we ate them with then was ketchup.
