The trio of egg kichel, herring and a L’chaim is synonymous with a Shabbos Kiddush. This oddly airy yet crunchy cracker has remained a steadfast of Jewish cuisine into the 21st century, undergoing various cultural iterations along its culinary journey.
Today we present a Kosher L’Pesach version of this traditional cracker (Note: This recipe contains corn starch). Kichel is the perfect snacking break from munching on Matzah, and is simple enough to make that you can take a break while your kids work in the kitchen.
