Fry Bread For Indian Tacos

4 cups flour
2 tbs yeast
1 tbs sugar
1 tbs salt
3/4 - 1 cup warm milk
3/4 - 1 cup warm water
1/4 cup oil
oil for frying

Add the yeast and sugar to the water, mix it and let it sit for 5 minutes.
Add the milk, flour, salt, and oil and knead until silky. It shouldn't be dry but not sticky.
Set aside to double for an hour. Gently deflate it and break off golf ball of bigger size pieces, flatten them with your hands, tear a small hole in the middle of each piece and fry in hot oil.

Top with taco filling, or for dessert honey or cinnamon and sugar.
