My uncles recipe for indian fry bread
Hello everyone, new here. Ive always enjoyed baking, mostly cookies tho. i havent baked bread since i was little with my mom. ive been wanting to bake my own bread for quite some time now mainly b/c of rising food cost, and bread tastes better when its homemade. I stumbled across this site while looking for easy bread recipes, and i just want to say, this is a wonderful community you folks have here and i am anxious to be part of it!
I would like to share my uncles recipe for indian fry bread with you all. he was a chippewa and even tho i have made this many times i still think he made the best. i hope everyone enjoys.
Just stir with a spoon. No mixer needed.
Stir together: 3 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
Then add and stir: 1 cup water
1/2 cup milk
Finally, add enough flour to make the dough able to be handled, so it isn't sticky. Form into round patties of about a half-inch thick, make crisscross marks on both sides with a knife (this keeps them from rising unevenly while frying) and fry in a skillet with about a quarter inch or so of preheated oil. Fry until golden brown on both sides. Serve hot with butter or your favorite jam. That's it. Enjoy.
