This next recipe is from a book called "Juedische Kueche" (Jewish cooking).

I just have the xeroxed page, so I can't give the author's name. The book states that these green pancakes come from the region between Pakistan and Iran. They are eaten alone with yogurt or sour cream, or as a side dish with hot curries.

Note that you need a food processor (i.e. Cuisinart) for this recipe.

In the food processor, puree the spinach/watercress/Swiss chard, with the fresh herbs and leeks/scallions until thoroughly mixed together. Put into a large bowl, and add the eggs nutmeg, and salt and pepper to taste. Fold in the matzoh meal. The batter should be fairly thick. Heat oil in a large frying pan, over high heat. Drop tablespoonfuls of the batter in the heated oil, and fry about 2 minutes or until the underside is light brown, then turn and fry another 2 minutes or until the other side is light brown.

Drain on paper towels. Garnish with coriander/dill if desired, and eat with yogurt/sour cream.
