Indian Fry Bread


  • Makes about 2 dozen.


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups warm water
  • Oil for frying


Put flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Mix well. Add water and stir until dough begins to form a ball. On a lightly floured surface, knead dough lightly, 2 to 3 minutes. Do not overwork. Place in a bowl and refrigerate 45 minutes. Heat oil to 350° in a large kettle or Dutch oven. Lightly flour surface and roll or pat out 2-1/2-inch rounds of dough about 1/4-inch thick. Cut a hole or slit in the center of each round so dough will fry flat. Place in hot oil and fry until golden brown. Flip over and cook until golden. Bread will be done in about 3 minutes depending upon thickness of dough and temperature of oil.
