Are you looking for a simple way to make Maori Bread? This traditional recipe is just right for you. This Maori bread is very popular in Maoris, the native New Zealanders. It is absolutely delicious. Serve with butter and jam for a wonderful treat.
Ingredients
  All purpose flour 3 Cup (48 tbs)
  Baking powder 6 Teaspoon
  Butter 3 Tablespoon, chilled
  Milk 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Vegetable oil   (for frying)
Directions

Step 1-Mix the flour and baking powder in a mixing bowl.

Step 2-Using a cheese grater, grate the butter into the flour mixture.

Step 3-Mix it with your fingers until the mixture crumbles. Add the milk until you can form a ball with the dough.

Step 4-Dust your counter with flour. Roll out the dough to a 1-inch thickness. Cut the dough into 2 1/2-inch squares.

Step 5-Fill an electric frying pan with 2 inches of vegetable oil and heat over medium heat. When the oil is hot, fry each square until it turns golden brown on each side.

Step 6-Remove the bread with tongs and set it on a paper towel or brown bag to cool.

I tried out this recipe, it was nice although its not the same as the maori bread I remember from my childhood. This recipe makes a very nice "melt in the mouth" crumblyish fry bread, whereas I am more accustomed to the one with a more "chewy" texture along with a sweet taste, kind of like a doughnut flavoured fry bread hehe.
