Jewish Recipes --> Recipes --> Vegetable Dishes --> Leeks

Keftes De Prasa or Leek Fritters
This recipe is adapted from Aromas of Aleppo by Poopa Dweck
Recipe Ingredients:
  •  1 Lb. leeks
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup of olive oil
  • 3 tbsp. unbleached flour
  • salt
  • black pepper or chili pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. allspice
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
Slice the leeks and saute them in olive oil. Set aside to cool.

Mix the all the remaining ingredients except the olive oil in a bowl. Incorporate the leeks into the mixture.

Heat the rest of the olive oil in a heavy pan over a medium flame. Spoon the leek batter into the hot oil. Turn the fritters over. They are ready when they are a golden-brown color.
Leeks

Leeks are called “karsi” in Aramaic, which is related to the Hebrew “karet” which means “sever, destroy, or cut off.” They are accompanied by a prayer to God to cut off our enemies. The traditional way to serve leeks is to prepare leek fritters also known as Keftes De Prasa.

The blessing we say over the leek fritters is:

“Yehi ratzon milfanecha Adonai Eloheinu she yeekartu soneinu.”

“May it be your will Adonai Our God that our enemies will be cut off.”
 
Leek -- Rosh HaShanah
