Schnitzle and Pititeem (israeli cous cous)

i think that Schnitzle and pititeem is the hands down favorite israeli meal at home. anything deep fried in oil is good, but when you add an array of spices you get an amazing sensasion in every bite. leftovers are great cold over a salad (if there are any)

    how do you make schnitzel without breadcrumbs. i want to make it for pesach non gebrokts. any suggestions. many thanks

    • I would suggest Jeff Nathan’s gluten free bread crumbs they are non gebrokts and really good for schnitzel if you can’t find them, try a nut crusted chicken recipe and use potato starch in place of flour.

      You can use matza meal, either crush it yourself or pre-maid. Once you add in your spices it will still be delishes! Or if you eat kitniyot you can crush up kfp bissli, or even kfp potatoe chips. The possibilities are endless!!
