4 cups all purpose flour
1 tbsp double-acting baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 cup vegetable shortening


In a bowl whisk together the flour, the baking powder, and the salt, stir in the water, and knead the mixture on a floured surface until it
forms a soft but not sticky dough.

Let the dough stand, covered with a kitchen towel, for 15 minutes. Pull off egg-size pieces of the doughand pat and stretch them into 1/4-inch thick rounds. Poke a hole with a finger through the center of each round so that the breads will fry evenly.

In a large heavy skillet heat the shortening over moderately high heat until it is hot but not smoking, in it fry the rounds, 1 at a time, for 2 minutes on each side, or until they are golden, and transfer the breads as they are fried to paper towels to drain.

Makes: 8 fry breads
