Heritage Recipe

Indian Fry Bread

Fry bread is a staple in the diet of most Indian tribes. Although the recipe may vary slightly among tribes, this particular recipe is from the Navajo Tribe. It was obtained by my parents when they lived on the Navajo reservation in Arizona. The bread is excellent for serving with stew, beans, honey, or any other food.

2 cups unsifted flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
warm water

Pour ingredients into mixing bowl. Add warm water and stir until dough is consistency of bread. Let dough set for 30 minutes before rolling or patting out with hands.

Tear off balls of dough and roll or pat out with hand into pieces 6 to 8 inches in diameter and 1/4 inch thick. If rolled out on board, dust lightly with flour or cornmeal. Punch a hole in the center of each piece to make it cook more evenly and not burst due to air bubbles.

Fry one piece at a time in hot fat (400 degrees and about 2 to 3 inches deep) until light brown on both sides. Drain on absorbent paper and serve.
