What is Bishi?
Bishi, also known as “beeshee,” is essentially a fried dough pastry, similar to Italian zeppole or American funnel cake. But for the Kardashians, it’s more than just a dessert. It’s a taste of home, a reminder of family gatherings, and a symbol of their Armenian heritage.
Bringing Bishi Home
While the Kardashians may keep their bishi recipe close to their hearts, there are plenty of similar recipes available online and in Armenian cookbooks. With a little effort, you can recreate this special treat in your own kitchen and bring a taste of Kardashian tradition to your home.
Kardashian Bishi Recipe
- 1 cup warm water (105-115 degrees F)
- 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- Oil for frying
- Powdered sugar or honey, for serving
- In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast and sugar in the warm water. Let stand for 5 minutes, or until foamy.
- Whisk in the eggs one at a time.
- Gradually add the flour and salt, mixing until a soft dough forms.
- Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5-7 minutes, or until smooth and elastic.
- Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour, or until doubled in size.
- Preheat the oil in a deep skillet or Dutch oven over medium heat until it reaches 375 degrees F.
- Once the dough has risen, punch it down and roll it out into a thin sheet about 1/4-inch thick.
- Cut the dough into desired shapes, such as circles, squares, or triangles.
- Carefully drop the bishi into the hot oil and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, or until golden brown.
- Remove the bishi from the oil and drain on paper towels.
- Serve immediately dusted with powdered sugar or drizzled with honey.
- For a richer flavor, add 1/4 cup of melted butter to the dough.
- If you don’t have a deep skillet or Dutch oven, you can use a large pot. Just be sure to use enough oil to cover the bishi.
- To prevent the bishi from sticking to the pan, drop them in the oil one at a time and don’t overcrowd the pan.
- If you want to make the bishi ahead of time, you can fry them and then let them cool completely. Reheat them in a 350 degree F oven for 5-10 minutes before serving.
