DIRECTIONS

  • Combine dry ingredients in a bowl.
  • Cut in the shortening until it resembles crumbs.
  • Slowly add water and mix thoroughly until you have a good dough.
  • Knead the dough for a few minutes.
  • Use flour when needed and break off pieces about the size of a golf ball.
  • You flatten these balls to about pancake size and fry in hot oil.
  • I don't remember the reason why but the Indians poke a hole in the center of the dough before frying.
  • When they are golden, drain on paper towels.
