When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced.
Live your life so that when you die,
the world cries and you rejoice.
Indian Fry Bread ~ Great as a taco shell! Or dessert (just sprinkle cinnamon-sugar mixture over top, place a scoop of ice cream and drizzle of chocolate syrup!)! Enjoy ~ V
4 C. All Purpose Flour
1 Tbsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Sugar
1 tsp. Garlic Powder
1 1/2 C. Cold Water
Vegetable or Canola oil for frying
Sift together all of your dry ingredients. Gently mix in your water until you have blended all of your ingredients well. Very LIGHTLY knead and work your dough until you get a soft non-sticky ball of dough (you may have to dust your dough with a bit of flour until it does not stick…do not overwork your dough, as this will make your bread tough and too chewy), cover with a kitchen towel, and let rest for about 15 minutes.
Separate your dough into 7-8 equal pieces. punch down with your finger tip and stretch each of your balls of dough out into 4″ diameter circles at about 1/4″ thick. Be sure not to stretch your dough out to much or else you will end up with crispy bread. Heat your oil to where it is hot but not smoking. You do not want your bread to fry to quickly or burn.
Poke a SMALL hole in the center of your rounds using a toothpick or skewer (just a quick poke, thats all you need, this helps the heat disperse throughout your dough evenly), and then one at a time, fry them in your oil, about 1 minute on each side or until lightly golden brown. transfer to a paper towel lined tray. Serve warm & Enjoy!
