Step 1

Mix together flour and baking powder.

Mix together butter, salt, and water. Slowly add to the flour while mixing with a wooden spoon until it forms a doughy consistency.

Step 3

Knead the dough on a floured surface with clean hands.

Step 4

Fill a cast iron skillet halfway with vegetable oil (usually about an inch). Heat until oil is very hot.

Step 5

Tear off small balls of the dough, then press them into your palm until they are mini round patties. Drop them into the skillet and fry until golden.

Step 6

Repeat until all the dough has been cooked. Remove and drain on paper towels or a rack.
