Dear Rabbi Simon,
We have a minhag (custom) to not eat matzah before Pesach, starting from Rosh Hodesh Nisan (although my personal preference is to abstain from after Pesach until the following Pesach!). I have now Kashered and changed over my kitchen for Pesach. Are we allowed to eat kosher for Pesach kneidlach & schnitzels fried in matzah meal? Or should we wait until Seder night?
Thank you for your question.
Yes, you may, as the taste sensation of eating these items, although made with matzah meal, is quite different to eating matzah itself. For this reason, the novelty of matzah at the seder is not diminished in this way.
Rabbi Rashi Simon
