  1. Mmmm. I once taught on a Native American reservation in the U.S. Southwest. There, they make a similar food called fry bread. No onions. Wheat flour. It is often served with mutton and fresh veggies, almost like an open-faced taco. Sometimes it is eaten warm with honey. People everywhere seem to love the combination of bread and oil. 🙂
