Navajo Fry Bread

Total Time:

Cook:
15 min

Yield:
12 fried breads, 6 to 12 servings

Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon plus 6 cups vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 1 cup powdered sugar, as optional topping
  • 1 cup honey, as optional topping
Directions

In the bowl of a food processor, mix the dry ingredients. Stir in 1 tablespoon of the oil and the water, and process until smooth. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead until the dough is just elastic and comes together, being careful not to over work. Shape the dough into a ball, cover tightly with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Divide the dough into 12 equal pieces. Flatten each piece and roll into a 7-inch circle, making as thin as possible. Poke a hole in the center with the handle of a wooden spoon or your finger.

In a large saute pan or deep fryer, heat the 6 cups of oil to 360 degrees F. Slip the rounds 1 at a time into the hot oil and cook for 2 minutes, turning once with a long-handled spoon. Drain on paper towels and repeat with the remaining dough.

Sprinkle the fried bread with powdered sugar and drizzle with honey, as desired, and serve.
