Potato Knish or Kinishes: Recipe from Russia…

potatoRussian love potato knish and they can be big knish or many little knishes! It just counts on what you desire. The big ones make a great sliced, like a loaf, meal and the little ones as I will show you to make, are pop in the mouth delicious…

Potatoes are plentiful in Russia and since they last all winter in storage, this recipe can be made year around. So grab you ingredients, skillet and bowls. Lets make a potato knish today…

Ingredients:
3 kilos of potatoes, peeled and diced
1 cup vegetable oil
3 large onions, chopped
salt and pepper to taste and two pinches of garlic (or a fresh clove, smashed will do!)
2 eggs
1 cup warm water
5 cups all-purpose flour, or as needed

Directions:

While the potatoes are cooking get a skillet out, heat 1/2 cup of the oil in the skillet over medium heat. Add the diced onions, garlic if desired and cook until done. Mix the onions and the cooking oil into the potatoes in the big mixing bowl. Then smash until smooth. Add with salt and pepper (garlic if desired) to taste, and set aside… (Do not eat it all yet!)

In a large bowl, mix together the eggs, the other half cup of oil left, warm water and salt to taste. Gradually mix in flour until the dough is stiff enough to remove from the bowl and knead. Turn out onto a lightly floured counter, and work for about 5 minutes. Let rest for a few minutes to relax the dough. While you wait for the dough to relax. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C. Then grease a cookie sheet with Pam or something like Crisco. I just use vegetable oil actually…
