INDIAN FRY BREAD
4 cups Flour (unsifted
1 to 1-1/2 cups oil for frying (traditionally
1 tablespoon Baking
fry bread is fried in lard or
1 teaspoon Salt
grease which gives a nice brown
Dry (Powdered) Milk
finish, but has lots of cholesterol)
In large bowl mix Flour, Baking Powder and Salt. Add
the Powdered Milk and mix all together.
Pour warm water into bowl and mix by hand until soft.
Scoop about one-fourth cup dough and
work it back and forth until it is round and flat like pizza
dough. Make hole in middle for fast
frying. Drop dough into the hot oil and brown on
both sides. Fry Bread can be served plain or sprinkled with powdered
sugar. Also, honey drizzled over it makes a yummy treat.
Fry bread is an excellent MONEY RAISER for clubs,
student organizations, etc. as it can be
made easily at the function site, needs no refrigeration,
smells divine while cooking, and is
economically a very great producer.
