  • Summary

    These golden brown fritters, which come from Shvil's Tunisian-Jewish family, are bursting with fresh flavor, thanks to a generous helping of Swiss chard, parsley, cilantro, and dill. They're especially delicious as part of the traditional Sephardic Rosh Hashanah seder meal.

    • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided, plus more
    • 1 tablespoon coriander seeds
    • 1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds
    • 1 bunch parsley
    • 1 bunch cilantro
    • 1 bunch dill
    • 3 medium onions, grated on large size box grater, excess water squeezed out using a paper towel
    • 1 tablespoon harissa pepper paste
    • 3/4 cup plain unseasoned breadcrumbs
    • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    • 6 large eggs, divided
