Potato kneidlach are light, fluffy potato dumplings for Passover that are a wonderful gluten-free substitute for matzo balls. I have loved these ever since I first made them for a gluten-free friend in 2005. I based this recipe off of one from The Passover Gourmet by Nira Rousso. My dad e-mailed me Rousso's recipe for potato dumplings a few years ago and I used that as the basis for these. Leftover batter can also be fried into chewy potato pancakes, as well.

Directions

  1. Cut potatoes into large chunks and boil in water until soft. Drain and allow to cool. Once cool, mash with oil, eggs, salt, pepper and dill.
  2. Stir in potato starch until thoroughly combined, and refrigerate the mixture for 1 hour.
  3. Bring soup or a pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Use your hands to gently form rough ball shapes from one tablespoon of batter at a time, and submerge dumplings in the soup or water - If you prefer, you may use a soup spoon or ice cream scoop to move free-form spoonfuls of batter into the pot. Boil for approximately 5-6 minutes - The dumplings will float up to the surface quickly but will need several additional minutes to cook all the way through.
  4. Serve in soup, or as a side dish with butter or margarine and fried onions.

These are amazing. The fresh dill is a nice touch. I will be making them for Passover for myself instead of matzo balls.

I made these for Passover and thought they were delicious. I will be making them for Rosh Hashonah. I definitely don't feel left out when the rest of the family is eating Matza balls.
