My Shoshone childhood friend's mother makes these and they are a treat! Eating suggestions: Honey and butter, as a replacement for a tortilla in a taco, or shake warm bread in a bag of cinnamon sugar.


  1. Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
  2. Gradually stir in water until dough is soft without sticking to bowl.
  3. Knead dough on lightly floured surface for 5 minutes.
  4. Return dough to bowl and cover with a clean towel.
  5. Let dough rest for 30 minutes.
  6. Shape dough into egg-size balls and roll on lightly floured surface to a thickness of 1/2 inch.
  7. Pat from hand to hand as you would pizza dough until it is 8 to 12 inches in diameter.
  8. Repeat with remaining dough balls.
  9. Heat about 1 1/2 inches of oil into a large frying pan over medium heat.
  10. Cook pieces, turning once until bread is golden brown.
  11. Drain on paper towels.
  12. Serve immediately.

Great recipe. I have made them 3 times now in the past month for indian tacos. The kids love them and don't leave any leftovers.I would luv to know if the dough can be frozen and used at a later time.
