Ashkanazim are forbidden to eat kitniyos or matzah ashira (matzah made with fruit juices) on Pesach. If an Ashkanazi would be sick (or when dealing with an older person) and would have to eat either one of the two, what is better, to eat the kitniyos or matzah ashira?
Both are however permitted in a pressing situation (shas hadchak).
The Rema writes in Siman 462 Sif 4 that Matzah Ashira would be permitted for a sick person or older person.
As well in regards to kitniyos the Chai Adam in Clal 127 Sif 6 (The M"B I believe also brings this) writes that it's permitted for a sick person, older person or a child to eat kitniyos in a pressing situation.
So what is better (i.e. which one is a "weaker" prohibition) in a pressing situation, the eating of kitniyos or matzah ashira?
