Knead 3 1/2 cups of the flour together with all of the other ingredients (except the vegetable oil) by hand or using the dough hook of a stand mixer.
Add flour until the dough forms a ball. (I began this process in the stand mixer, but found that as the dough started to get thicker, it was easier to finish up kneading by hand.)
Shape the dough into wagon wheels or whatever other shape suits your fancy. I used a chopstick to help shape the dough (as shown above). The fastest thing would be to simply roll to dough into little logs.
Fry the shapes in vegetable oil at 350 F until brown (about two minutes). I did them in small batches since I used my mini deep fryer. I find deep frying to be so much easier and cleaner in the deep fryer vs a pot.
