How to make it

  • Combine dry ingredients then cut in butter.
  • Add enough warm milk to make a soft dough easy to handle.
  • Knead on floured board until dough is very smooth and soft but elastic.
  • Divide dough into 8 balls and brush tops with melted butter.
  • Cover and let stand 45 minutes.
  • Pat out each ball into a round 5 or 6 inches in diameter and 1/4 inch thick.
  • Fry in deep fat preheated to 365 degrees.
  • Dough should rise immediately to surface.
  • Cook until brown on one side then turn and brown on other side being careful not to pierce crust.
  • Drain on absorbent paper and serve hot.

    My first fried bread. Can't say I care for it.
    Definitely needs a lubricant to swallow.

    I can honestly say I do not particularly make any recipes where I don't know the website or where there isn't a picture. I was craving fried bread and made this today (for me and my boyfriend), and I absolutely loved it. This recipe is way better than the fried breads you get at fair!! I give this recipe 2 thumbs way up!!!

    Loved this fried bread. I've not had very good luck
    with other recipes,but this one came out perfect
    first time. I had to substitute, water for milk cause I did not have any, but it still came out light and crispy and very tasty. I may just keep using the water cause I liked it so much. This is a keeper recipe.

    Have to make some of this for the week end.. It is what we call Indian bread, but without the lard.. Wonderful. Great post!

    This is Indian bread that has gone modern with butter. My son is a chef at a fine dining restaurant in a Choctaw Casino here and a Choctaw friend came to his house and made fry bread. They used shortening, but wanted lard, which I didn't have. Delicious. I ran mine through a decalorizer to cut the calories to a safe level.

    This looks very similar to Indian Fry Bread found all over Arizona and the southwest. I absolutely love fry bread so I look forward to trying this.
