      1/2   c            Whole wheat flour

   Additional whole wheat flour Peanut oil or corn oil
   for deep frying
   
   Combine 1/2 cup whole wheat flour and self-rising
   flour in medium bowl. Mix in buttermilk.  Knead dough
   on lightly floured surface 2 minutes. Cover and let
   rest 15 minutes.
   
   Divide dough into 8 pieces.  Roll 1 piece into smooth
   ball (keep remainder covered with towel).  Dust
   generously with whole wheat flour and roll into
   5-inch-diameter circle, dusting with flour to prevent
   sticking. Cover. Repeat with remaining dough.
   
   Pour oil into wok or medium saucepan to depth of 3
   inches.  Heat to 375 degrees.  Add 1 dough round to
   oil; dough will sink to bottom. When dough starts to
   rise, gently press in center with back of slotted
   spoon until bread puffs.  Turn and cook until light
   brown, about 20 seconds. Transfer to paper towels
   uning slotted spoon. Keep warm while cooking remaining
   dough.  Place on platter and serve immediately.
