  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Oil should be at least one-inch deep.
  2. Mix flour, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl. Add water a little at a time until dough comes together into a ball and doesn't stick to your hands, about 5 minutes.
  3. Tear off plum-sized pieces of dough and flatten into 1/2-inch disks.
  4. Fry pieces of dough in the hot oil until brown on both sides, about 3 minutes. Drain on paper towels or napkins before serving.

  • We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. Amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and specific type of oil used.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Simple recipe, one thing I did differently, when the dough mixture was done, I rolled it using a seasoned flour mix , gave the bread a nice flavor! Will use this recipe again!

I was looking for traditional fried bread. This one is more like a biscuit but it was delicious. I added a little sugar and used milk instead of water.
