There are a wide range of uses for matzo meal in Jewish cuisine, and as a result, it is usually in stock at stores which carry Jewish foods. Commercial matzo meal often comes in several grades, from coarse to fine. It is also possible to make your own matzo meal, either from matzo you bake yourself or matzo purchased at the store.
