Navajo Frybread

This is just a generic recipe I found in my Native American Harvest and Food book I bought in a thrift store in ABQ.

NAVAJO FRY BREAD:
1 Cup flour
1 t baking powder
1/4 Cup powdered milk
1/4 t salt
dash of warm water
Combine the ingredients and slowly add enough warm water
to form dough. On a lightly floured surface, knead dough until it is smooth soft and not sticky. Cover and let rest one hour.
Shape into small balls and pat into flat circles about
1/4-1/2 inch thick. Set aside.
In skillet, heat 1/2 inch vegetable oil. Brown dough circles on each side and drain on paper towels.

Can be served sweet or savoury, goes very well sweet with Prickly Pear Jam.
