I learned of this recipe when a small girl. Mom would cook up a pot of chili and beans and would cover it with lettuce, cheese and salsa. We knew it growing up as Indian Tacos, what ever you call it, it tastes great!
- 4 cups flour (sift, important to sift flour being used for bread always, even though it might be “fluffy”, sift it)
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons powdered milk
- 1 1/2 cups warm water
Mix flour, baking powder, salt and powdered milk thoroughly. Pour warm water into flour mixture and mix it with your hands until soft.
Make a ball of dough and knead it until it is flat and round. If you want to shorten the time, use a rolling-pin if you must, but if you practice doing it just with your hands, you will soon enough become very proficient and fast with this process.
Melt 1/2 cup of oil in a heavy frying pan, fry the do in the oil until brown on both sides.
Top as you like, it tastes great under chili and beans, as a taco or even with a drizzle of honey!
