4 cups flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. powdered milk
1-1/2 cup warm water
1 cup shortening–enough to fill 1 inch deep in frying pan
In a large bowl, mix flour with baking powder, salt, and powdered milk. Pour in warm water and mix to form dough. Knead dough by hand until it is soft but not sticky. Cover with a cloth and allow to stand for about 15 minutes. Shape into balls about 2 inches across, then flatten by patting and stretching the dough with hands and fingers until the dough is flat and round. If preferred, a rolling pin may be used instead.
Melt shortening in a heavy frying pan, and heat for frying. Add dough, fry one side, then turn. Fry bread until it is golden brown on both sides. SHARE With Your Friends:
