Navajo Fry Bread
3 Cups unbleached white flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 Tablespoon powdered milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Cup water
1 inch of vegetable oil in a skillet.
Mix the dry ingredients first, then add the water and stir. Make sure it is well mixed but don't really kneed the dough. Break off pieces of dough to form balls slightly smaller than a tennis ball. On a well floured surface,roll out the dough to form a flat circle. Fry in hot oil until golden in color. Cool on paper towels to absorb extra oil.
If you do not eat all of your fry bread in one sitting, it can be stored in the refrigerator. Reheat at 350 degrees F. for 10-15 minutes.
The fry bread is great the way it is, but it can also be used to make Navajo Tacos.
The fry bread is the base of the Navajo Tacos, with refried beans, cooked and crumbled ground beef,finely diced or slice onions, shredded cheese, lettuce and tomatoes.
