Navajo Fry Bread

28 Jun

I learned of this recipe when a small girl.  Mom would cook up a pot of chili and beans and would cover it with lettuce, cheese and salsa.  We knew it growing up as Indian Tacos, what ever you call it, it tastes great!

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups flour (sift, important to sift flour being used for bread always, even though it might be “fluffy”, sift it)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons powdered milk
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water

Directions:

Mix flour, baking powder, salt and powdered milk thoroughly.  Pour warm water into flour mixture and mix it with your hands until soft.

Make a ball of dough and knead it until it is flat and round.  If you want to shorten the time, use a rolling-pin if you must, but if you practice doing it just with your hands, you will soon enough become very proficient and fast with this process.

Melt 1/2 cup of oil in a heavy frying pan, fry the do in the oil until brown on both sides.

Top as you like, it tastes great under chili and beans, as a taco or even with a drizzle of honey!
