How to make it

  • Mix all dry ingredients - cut in lard. Add milk to make a thick dough. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and kneed till it is elastic and not sticky.
  • Heat enough Crisco or Oil in a deep pan to fill bottom 1/2 inch of pan - or use deep frier.
  • Break off egg sized handfulls of dough and press between your fingers till they are 1/4 inch thick all over. Deep fry till golden brown on one side and turn over and fry for a few minutes on other side.
  • Place between paper towels to cool a bit and absorbe excess oil.
  • Serve warm as a side to stews, salads, Carne Asada or use as a base for tostadas.
  • Option - use golf ball size pieces of dough and when they are cooked you can drizle them with honey and or powdered sugar as a dessert.

    This is not Indian Fry Bread..it's flat funnel cake. Indians don't put sugar or milk in their recipes..please name it something else instead of Indian Fry Bread.

    thats a really nice point, kwindancer. peanut oil
    in a cast iron pan. dont start frying until oil is 350-375 degF. the cast iron will help keep the oil at a high enough temperature to limit absorbtion. my family loves fry bread with green chili stew. i usually make the puffy style
    but have been wanting to try this type of flat bread. thanks for the recipe!

    I get these when I am at the fair with beans, lettuce, tomato, sour cream, salsa, and olives on it. Just like a big tostada. It is AWESOME!!! I miss them.

    3 C Flour
    2 T Baking Powder
    1 T Sugar
    1 t Salt
    2 T Lard or Crisco
    2 C Cold Milk
    Crisco or Oil for frying or deep frier
    The way I make my fried bread is to leave out the lard /crisco you don't need it it will weight the bread down. And mainly don't over work the flour. If you cook it in oil use Peanut oil it cooks at a high temp. You need to cook the bread fast so it dosen't take in the oil. To make the dough easy to fry spread oil on a platic chopping broad and spead it out with your fingers then drop into a deep fryer until golden brown. At some of the powwows in Va I have my fav cooks and I've learn how to make it from them. To also make it lighter you can add fast active yeast to the mix. Then top with the buffalo or hamberger meat lettice, tomatoe, cheese it better if you ask for more juice on it.

    This recipe tastes good, but it does not taste like Indian Fry Bread. Instead, it taste like a funnel cake, or a pancake. A mexican sopapilla taste more like Indian fry bread than this recipe. Again, the bread tastes good, but something is not right with this recipe. It may be the sugar - perhaps taking out the sugar would have made it taste less like a funnel cake or pancake.
