Homemade Kishka & Cholent

Kishka Recipe

2 slices bread/1 challah roll

1 ¼ cup flour

⅓ cup oil

⅓ cup water

½ tsp salt

¼ tsp black pepper

1 tsp garlic powder

½ tsp paprika

2 tsp sugar

2 table spoon shmaltz (or 2 tsp oil)

1 glove!


Soak bread in water until soft then squeeze out water. Combine remaining ingredients and mix well until dough forms.

Split dough into 2 and roll up in parchment paper.

Pro tip* moistening parchment paper with a bit of water prior to rolling kishka will help kishka not stick to paper.

Make your own shmaltz:

Request chicken fat (not chicken skin) from your local butcher. Place in pot on very low flame until fat is completely rendered. Store in small containers in fridge up to 4 weeks or freeze.
