Kreplach are meat filled ravioli traditionally served on Erev Yom Kippur, Hoshana Rabba and Purim. Just as the meat is hidden in the dough, so too each of these days has an aspect of "hidden". On Yom Kippur, we hope our sins will be hidden. Hoshana Rabba is a hidden Yom Tov. And the Purim miracle was hidden as well.
My mother makes fabulous kreplach from scratch, but since I've discovered kosher frozen ravioli dough, I make it that way instead. If you have a favorite ravioli dough, you can use it here instead.
Ravioli exists in almost every food culture. My friend Seena Chriti compiled a documentary on ravioli in different cultures, which you can see on her website foodwonderstv.com. Some are cooked, some are baked, some are fried, and some, like these, can be cooked and then fried.
Happy printing and happy cooking!
