Alaadikax - Fried Bread

I usually double up this recipe:

2 packets of yeast
2 tablespoons of granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 cups luke warm water
2 tablespoons of shortening
6-7 cups of flour

I like to mix the yeast, salt and sugar in a large bowl, then add the water. I melt the shortening in the microwave, then stir it in with the yeast mixture. Mix until yeast is dissolved, then add 2 cups of flour and mix thoroughly. Keep adding flour until dough is easy to handle. Then kneed on a floured surface until springy (about 2-4 mins). Put dough in a lightly greased large container and let rise for 45-60 min or until doubled. Punch dough down, and shape and fry. I like to use an electric skillet set at 375F. Brown on one side, flip and brown the other side. Set on papertowels to soak any extra grease.

Hope this was easy to follow.... any simple bread recipe in a cookbook will work, it's practically the same thing, just fried.


  1. Nummy Nummy Nummy!!!
    I just hate the smell of the grease in my apt afterward......... but it is STILL worth it!!

  2. We call that scones or Indian bread here, it's so yummy. I like mine with butter and honey! I usually use the frozen bread dough. The bake sale sounds like a success! If I were there I would have bought alot, sweets are my weakness!
