My family and I love fry bread, but I don't get around to making it too often. I don't have a problem ordering fry bread at a restaurant or at the fair, but for some reason, watching them float around in a bath of hot oil just seems a little, um, eww. They do turn out VERY tasty though.
We ate them as Navajo Tacos this time, but we also love to eat the with honey butter or cinnamon honey butter. YUM!!!
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
4 cups oil for frying, or as needed
In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir in milk, and mix until the dough comes together. Add more flour if necessary to be able to handle the dough. On a floured surface, knead the dough until smooth, at least 5 minutes. Let the dough rest for 5 minutes.
Heat oil in a large, deep heavy skillet to 365 degrees F (180 degrees C). Oil should be about 1 1/2 inches deep. Break off 3/4 cup sized pieces of dough, and shape into round discs 1/4 inch in thickness, making a thinner depressed area in the center. Fry breads in the hot oil until golden on both sides, turning only once. Drain on paper towels.
