Indian Fry Bread

Many Native Americans have a recipe for Fry Bread. This one listed is not ours. We have perfected our own and we hold ingredients that make ours special. One of those is tinpsula. This is a food widely used by many Native Indian tribes, and was one of the primary foods used by the plains Indians. Although tinpsula makes our bread different, there is much more than that that goes into our processes of Fry Bread.

Ingredients

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups warm water

Oil, for frying

Directions

  1. Put flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Mix well, add warm water and stir until dough begins to ball up. On a lightly floured surface knead dough. Do not over-work the dough. After working dough, place in a bowl and refrigerate for 1/2 to 1 hour.
  2. Heat oil to 350 degrees in a frying pan or kettle. Lightly flour surface and pat and roll out baseball size pieces of dough. Cut hole in middle with a knife (so the dough will fry flat) to 1/4-inch thickness and place in oil and cook until golden brown and flip over and cook opposite side until same golden brown. Dough is done in about 3 minutes depending on oil temperature and thickness of dough.
  3. After fry bread is done top with favorite topping or, chile and cheese first, then cover with lettuce and tomatoes, onions, green chile and you have an Indian Taco.
