A knish — in this instance you know, of course, to pronounce the "k" — consists of a filling surrounded by a dough shell. It can be totally sheathed in dough and deep-fried, like the rectangular packets of mashed potato stocked by many street vendors, or it can be a bulkier cup of dough that's baked, like the knishes served at Yonah Schimmel and here in Forest Hills. Shown is a kasha knish ($3.25), a traditional Eastern European version filled with buckwheat groats, withdrawn from the oven not long before. For dine-in customers, Knish Nosh offers a handful of tables provisioned with squirt bottles of yellow Hebrew National deli mustard; on the kasha, it's not needed.
