A great recipe to make and serve with soup. Another way to serve this as a snack is to shake it in a small bag with sugar as soon as you fry it. Another way to serve this bread is to put taco toppings on it. I first had this at an Indian Pow Wow it was so delicious. This is an original ceremonial bread that the Indians only used on great feast days. This recipe serves 12.


4 cups flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cup Carnation Evaporated milk
Enough oil to deep fry


Combine dry ingredients in bowl. Mix well with whisk until combined. Add enough milk to mak a biscuit like dough. Roll to 1/4 inch thick on floured board. Cut into 2 x 3 inch strips.Cut hole in center of each strip. Drop several at a time into hot pil in deep fryer or heavy dutch oven. Fry until crisp and brown, turning once; drain on paper towels.

Not a NESTLÉ®-tested recipe.
