    1. 1
      Combine the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl.
    2. 2
      Cut in butter until mixture feels crumbly, like sand. You can also mix the ingredients in a food processor.
    3. 3
      Add just enough evaporated milk to make a stiff but pliable dough. Stir just enough to mix.
    4. 4
      Pinch off walnut-sized pieces of dough and roll them between your palms to make long, thin ropes, about 10 inches long and 1/4 inch thick. There should be about 24.
    5. 5
      Heat oil in a deep fryer or large, deep skillet over medium-high heat.
    6. 6
      When oil has reached 350°, gently lower the festivals into the oil. Fry, turning with a slotted spoon, until golden brown on both sides, 2-4 minutes.
    7. 7
      Drain on paper towels and serve hot.

      I was looking for a festival recipe and here it is under 'fry bread'. I use a little more proportion of corn meal to the flour, and I make them a little shorter and a little thicker, but everything else is the same. Yumm!
