 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3      cups          all-purpose flour
    1      tablespoon    baking powder
      1/2  teaspoon      salt
                         freshly ground black pepper to taste
    1      tablespoon    ground toasted cumin seed (cominos)
    1      cup           warm water
    8      cups          vegetable oil for frying
 
 Mix flour, baking powder, salt, pepper and cumin. Slowly add water until
 dough forms; it should be soft but not sticky. Knead gently. Let rest 15
 minutes. Heat oil to 375 degrees. Roll dough out 1/2 inch thick and pull
 off 3-inch square or round pieces. Drop into hot oil, a few at a time, and
 let cook until they float to the top. Remove with slotted spoon. Drain.
 Serve as a snack, with a salad or a meal.
