The traditional Indian fry bread is a flat dough loaf that is cooked and miraculously expands up into tiny pillows of joy! This delectable genuine fry bread is made with basic ingredients and may be enjoyed alone or with a variety of toppings like butter and honey, jam, or cinnamon sugar. 

I can state without a doubt that this recipe is a dream come true! It's not only very simple to prepare but if you're a carb-a-vore like myself... Only fried bread is better than freshly baked handmade bread! 

What. Might. Be. A. Little. Bit. Better? I'm not sure... Perhaps slathering it with copious amounts of butter and then drizzling it with copious amounts of honey! 

Before we came to Utah, I had never eaten Indian Fry Bread. It's a big hit in our state's county fairs. When the golden disc made contact with my taste senses for the first was LOVE!


– A Cup.Of all-purpose flour.

– 1/2 Cup.Of plus 2 large spoons.Of Milk. 

– A small spoon.Of baking powder. 

– 1/4 small spoon of salt. 

– Vegetable Oil for Frying

– Extra flour for your hands

Follow these steps to prepare the Indian fry bread in no time:

– Step 1: First you need to mix 1 cup all-purpose flour with 11/2 spoons baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium-size mixing basin, and using a wire whisk, combine all the ingredients. 

– Step 2: Secondly, mix in 1/2 cup milk and 2 teaspoons milk. When measuring liquids, be sure you use a liquid measuring cup. 

The original recipe mentions just 1/2 cup milk. I discovered that this causes the dough to be excessively dry! As a result, two more teaspoons of milk are added to make the ideal dough! By simply combining it with a rubber spatula, this dough will readily form. In comparison to a wooden spoon, I like to use a rubber spatula since the sticky dough comes off quickly. 

– Step 3: Then, on a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough. My dough disc is one of my favorites. It's ideal for rolling out pastries and kneading doughs. 

– Step 4: Only knead the bread a few times for the ideal Indian Fry Bread. I scrape the dough onto a dusted dough disc and gently roll it about in the flour to ensure it is evenly covered. Then I knead it gently four or five times more until it's just simple to deal with. Form a rectangle out of the dough. 

– Step 5: Following that, refrigerate for 30 minutes after placing in a bowl. It will be less sticky as a result of this, and if desired, you can skip this step. Just be aware that rolling out the dough may be a challenge! 

– Step 6: After the dough has cooled, cut it into four equal pieces with your pastry scraper. Make balls out of them. 

– Step 7: And roll each ball into a 1/4-inch thick disc using a floured rolling pin. Make a hole in the middle of each disc using your finger or a sharp knife. This will aid in keeping the bread flat during cooking. 

– Step 8: After that add 1 inch of vegetable oil or melted shortening to a large pan or kettle and heat to 350°. 

– Step 9: Carefully put the dough disc into the hot oil, lying the bread dough away from you! Always, always, always put the things you're frying into hot oil while laying them away from you. First and foremost, safety! 

– Step 10: And now, allow 4 minutes for the bread to fry until golden brown. Lift the fry bread with tongs and gently flip it over to cook the other side. 

– Step 11: With tongs, remove the fried bread from the hot oil and put it on a dish lined with paper towels. Allow draining before going to cook the next fried bread.
