Divide dough into 2 balls. Roll out each ball as thin as possible.

Cut into strips 1-inch wide.

Melt ½ cup vegetable oil and ½ cup shortening in deep pan.

When the oil and shortening is melted and hot, roll the 1-inch strips of dough on a fork and place in the oil and continue curling the strips as you go along. Cook to a slight brown color and put on paper towels to absorb the oil and drain.
