I gave specific details of one kind my mother made and that i find on 
many Jewish cooking web sites. The ingredients in the family are very 
much like the one that Crixa makes, but theirs is deep and served in 
squares, whereas my mother made hers thinner, then prepared as i 

There's another kind that is dense and gummy that i've had in 
restaurants, which is sort of like a compacted deflated mousse, often 
with ground nuts in it. This generally goes down the hatch like a 
cannonball, although often a delicious one.

I prefer the kind that Crixa makes and my mother made - light and 
airy, yet with very intense and rich flavor.
Someone sometimes called Urtatim
