Knead the ingredients well, adding milk until the dough is soft and homogeneous. Let the dough rest in a bowl covered with a damp cloth. Let the dough rise for at least 2 hours. Roll out the dough until it is app. 3-4mm, cut it out in diamond patterns and fry the bread, few at a time in lard or peanut oil.
