How do you make the best frybread in the world?

Dear Auntie, how do you make the best frybread in the world?

Ooh, this is making me hungry already. 🙂

So, I tend to eat my Auntie’s frybread instead of making my own. But maybe I should start learning to make my own. Here is their recipe you can try on. You’re going to need: 4 cups flour & ½ tsp. salt & 1 Tbsp. baking powder & 1 ½ cups warm water.

  • Mix all your dry ingredients.
  • Add about 1 ½ cups of warm water, or more if it’s dry. If it’s too wet add more flour.
  • Put the dough into a greased bowl, cover for about 15 min.
  • Next, add some shortening on your hands to keep it from sticking to your fingers.
  • Take about a fist full of dough, form it into a ball, then smash it down and pat it out, throwing it back and forth between your hands to the size of large pancakes. You can roll it out first, then use your hands if that’s easier. When you’re done, punch a little hole in the middle so it stays flat when frying.
  • Fry it in about an inch of hot oil until golden brown, turning only once.
  • When they’re done, you can put them on a plate with paper towels to soak up the grease.

For toppers…dealers choice. You can make Indian Tacos, honey, or powdered sugar, or my favorite; pinto beans, onions, and Zuni salt. 🙂

If anyone else had a good recipe, please feel free to share!

Happy cooking and good luck!
