Matzo Meal

Matzo Meal is Matzo bread ground into fine crumbs. You can buy it ground, or grind your own in a food processor.

Medium-textured Matzo Meal is about the same texture as cornmeal. It is used for baking, as a coating for fried foods, to thicken, and to make matzo balls from.

Fine-textured Matzo Meal is more finely ground for use in cakes. It is labelled cake meal.

Coarse Matzo Meal is called "matzo farfel."


Finely-ground unsalted crackers, particularly unsalted soda-crackers. In the UK, you can use Water Biscuits. Just whiz them up in a blender or food-processor. Or, dried finely-ground breadcrumbs.


1 cup matzo meal = 3 matzos

History Notes

Matzo Meal was first sold commercially, already ground and ready to use, by the Manischewitz Company in the early 1900s.
