Marketplace Indian Fried Bread Tostada

I use to go to a mall here and they had the best Indian fry bread. You could get refried beans and cheese on top or have it with melted butter and sugar and cinnamon. Either way it was so good. I found this recipe in an Indian newspaper a long time ago and it is just like I ate at the mall.

My Gramma used to make this but we would dip the bread in sugar and eat it for a dessert.
