Step 1

Mix 1/2 the flour with the remaining dry ingredients.

Step 2

Add the water until it becomes thick, like a paper mache paste.

Step 3

Add more flour until the dough feels like a soft earlobe (I don't use all the flour most times)

Step 4

Heat oil or lard over medium heat until hot but not smoking.

Step 5

Break off a small pieces of dough and flatten each to the size of your palm, about 1/2" thick.

Step 6

Place pieces 2 or 3 at a time in the hot oil; turn after about 3 minutes, or golden brown.

Step 7

Fry second side until it is golden.

Step 8

Remove to paper towels to soak up excess grease.

Step 9

Serve plain or with jam etc.
