This is a delicious bread that was/is very common to every Native American. It's very delicious and goes with absolutely anything you want it for:) like salads, pastas, tacos anything! Very easy to make and very good to eat:)


  1. Mix the dry ingredients together, mix the egg and the water, add to the dry mixture.
  2. Add flour or water to adjust mixture to a very soft dough mixture.
  3. Put dough on a well floured board.
  4. Roll out to about a 1 inch thickness.
  5. Let set for about 15 minutes.
  6. Cut into what ever size you would like.
  7. Batter makes about 25 pieces.
  8. Deep fry in hot oil, just enough to brown on each side.
  9. Put on a paper towel to get some of the oil off of the bread.

This turned out perfectly for the Indian tacos' recipe I made: Indian Tacos - Ojibway Style. I shaped the dough too small but next time I'll know to make them bigger. See my review for the Indian tacos.

I plan to use this at our meeting at the musuem. the topic is American artifacts. So thought this would go well. But can I make it the day before and still be good?
