Navajo Fry Bread |

Navajo Fry Bread




  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, yeast and salt. Add the melted butter or shortening to warm milk and mix well. Add 3/4 cup of the milk mixture to the dry mixture and stir together until it comes together and forms a ball. The dough should be slightly sticky and elastic so you can add what is needed from the remaining 1/4 cup milk of the milk mixture to get the right consistency.
  2. Cover the dough and allow to rest 10 minutes.
  3. While the dough rests, heat up 1 inch of oil in a large skillet to 350 – 360 degrees.
  4. Once the dough has rested, divide it into 12 equal pieces.
  5. On a lightly floured surface roll the dough out one piece a time, rolling each into a 6 inch circle
  6. Fry them one at a time in the hot oil. Allow to cook until golden brown, about 1 or so minutes per side.
  7. Remove from oil and drain onto a plate or baking sheet lined with paper towels. Serve warm with Navajo Taco toppings or with butter and honey.
