   Native American
   Heat to 375 degrees 1 inch of oil in a deep skillet.
   Combine 2 cups flour, salt, baking powder, and water.
   Mix well. Stir in enough more flour to make a soft
   dough. Turn dough out on a floured surface and knead
   until smooth and elastic. Pinch off about a 3 inch
   ball of dough. Flatten dough with hands and stretch
   into a 7-8 inch circle about 1/4 inch thick. Fry in
   hot oil until light golden brown, turn and brown
   opposite side. Drain on paper towels. Serve with stew
   (mutton is best), jam/jelly, or with honey and butter.
   This bread makes great Navajo Tacos.
