Panamanian Ojaldas (fried bread) is a staple in Panamá that is eaten right through the day. You can always find somebody walking the streets with a greasy bag with ojaldas. Mango trees are easy to find with the mangos falling off the trees.

Mix all dry ingredients then and wet ingredients. Roll them out. And fry them. It takes less than two minutes to cook each ojalda (fried bread).
When done with the frying, some people like eating the ojaldas with honey drizzled all over them. Some folks eat it with cheese, ham, and sausage. Some shower it with powdered sugar.
