- 2 cups flour
- 1 TBSP baking powder
- 1 tsp. salt
- 3/4 - 1 cup hot water
- oil for frying
Pinch off balls of dough about the size of a golf ball. Roll out each ball on a floured surface with a rolling pin until dough is about 1/8 thick. Heat about 2 inches of oil in a deep pan to about 375 degrees. Fry dough one piece at a time until golden. Turn to cook other side. Drain on paper towels. If done correctly the fry bread will puff up with several bubbles in the dough. Makes about 6-9 pieces of fry bread.
If serving for dinner: Pile them high with toppings to make Navajo tacos. Our favorite way to eat these is with this beef recipe, beans, shredded lettuce, shredded cheese, sliced olives, diced tomatoes, sour cream, and salsa. Ground hamburger taco meat or chili is also a yummy idea!
For dessert or even a special breakfast you can slather these with honey and butter, and they are scrumptious.
