Any good fry bread recipes?

Our annual Tulip Festival is over...... and the indian tacos are gone too! Anyone have a good fry bread recipe? My aunt has flattened and fried the frozen bread dough rolls, but I was maybe wanting to make them from scratch if the authentic recipe was diiferent than the usual bread.... I am gonna do some hunting on the internet today, but thought I would ask all of my favorite DC experts first!

There's a lot of new members wooohooooo! Sorry, I haven't been around much! When the weather warms up, I am O-U-T-S-I-D-E!!!!!!!! (And still spending LOTS of time with my new sweetie!!!)

Hi Shannon, not sure if there is a particular recipe for fried bread that you are interested in or are you just looking for some ideas.

We make pooris which are nothing but a form of fried bread that we eat with spiced potatoes or chickpea curry. You can season the dough a bit and either make them crisps or make them soft. I prefer the soft version and my kids love to eat them by themself when they are hot. Here is how I make it

2 cups of all purpose flour
1 cup of wheat flour (I buy Durum wheat flour from my local Farmer market)
2 tsp of salt
pinch of cumin powder
1/2 cup of plain yogurt
1/2 cup of water or a little more to bring the dough together

Mix the two doughs, salt and cumin together. Next add the yogurt and water and make a smooth dough.

Let it rest covered for atleast an hour to two hours. Make medium sized dough balls and roll into small discs and fry them in oil until they puff. Remove and serve it with something spicy or something sweet or just plain(the choice is yours)

LTNS Shannon. I know what you mean about being outside, as I try to get out to do my thing as often as I can.

I haven't had a good Indian Taco since the last time I went to a Pow-wow back in Tulsa, at least a good 7 - 8 years.

Here's a recipe I have for the mix. I haven't tried it, so I don't know if it works.

Fry Bread
Yields:

3 c sifted Self-Rising Flour
3 c warm water
1 c buttermilk
-or- 1/3 c of sweet milk
1 t salt
skillet full of Crisco oil
Deep cast iron skillet or deep heavy skillet

Mix the flour with the salt, add the milk, then the water to mixture and stir until blended together (but not runny). Pour mixture onto a floured surface and knead until soft dough is formed. Pat dough into an oblong shape. Cut into desired size (approximately 3 x 3”) and pat down again before putting bread into hot oil. While you are making dough, your oil should be on the fire becoming hot. Grease or oil is ready to fry when a pinch of bread dough is dropped into oil and it floats to the top. Add a cut peeled potato to soak up flour remnants in grease. In hot grease, it takes about 3 minutes on each side to brown. When it is golden brown on one side, turn to other side to brown (turn only once). Remove into dish and it is ready to serve.

Also, look in a grocery store either where the flour/baking stuff is, or in the international aisle. There should be a bagged or box mix for Indian Fry Bread.

Here's one I got from a friend in Idaho, where apparently fry bread is called 'scones'!

MORMON WHITE BREAD AND SCONES


Mix together well: 3 cups flour cup dry milk 1/8 cup sugar
1T salt 2 pkg.yeast

Add & mix well: 2 cups hot water 1/8 cup oil

Then add: 2 cups flour as needed

Turn out on floured surface and knead til smooth and satiny, about 10 minutes. Gradually add flour to prevent sticking. Put into greased bowl to rise til double. Punch down dough, shape into loaves - 2 or3. Let rise til double. Preheat oven to 350; bake for 30 minutes, or til golden brown.

SCONES
Prepare dough as above. Let rise, and after punching down, grease hands, take a small amount of dough and stretch out to an oval shape. Fry in deep hot oil (350) til brown on both sides. Serve hot with honey butter.

HONEY BUTTER
3/4 cup honey
pound butter
Soften butter and whip for 10 minutes til very light and fluffy. Add honey and whip for 5 more minutes.

The easiest recipe (from my Cherokee Grandma, although it is the same as from a Lakota relative too) ) is to mix all purpose flour with some salt, baking powder and just enough warm water to make a dough that is not too tough or too sticky. Knead for about 10 minutes, put in a bowl covered with plastic wrap and let rest for 20-30 minutes. Tear off small balls of the dough, roll out to approx. 1/2 inch and fry in very hot oil. Drain and top with your favorite toppings. I've been making fry bread almost all of my life.

In San Diego, Museum of Man has a yearly Indian Fair. They bring over Indians from Arizona for arts and crafts as well as fry bread. They use the same recipe that you do Shunka. It sure is good!The ladies hand form the the bread like you make tortillas. I've tried it but I know that is a skill that takes time to master!
