Hamur Kizartmasi/Pişi

Pişi is a very simple Turkish, bread-like, fried dough snack. People in Turkey usually eat this for breakfast, but please, dont let that stop you from eating it whenever you want. =) Until recently, I had no idea that the official name of this dish was called Pişi. My mother and the rest of my family call it simply fried dough (hamur kizartmasi). But pişi sounds more fun, so pişi it is!
