Navajo Fry Bread Recipe














The question I raised in Friday's newsletter re Chris in NM post in FB was for Navajo Fried Bread. Not tried and tested but this is the recipe:

Navajo Fry Bread Recipe

Ingredients
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp rapid rise or active dry yeast
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup warm milk (110 degrees)
1 Tbsp butter or shortening , melted
Vegetable oil , for frying (sometimes I use half olive oil)

Directions
In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, yeast and salt. Whisk melted butter into warm milk and pour milk mixture into dry ingredients. Stir until mixture comes together and slightly forms a ball, dough should be fairly sticky (if needed you can add in a little more flour or a little more water to reach a good consistency but try not to overwork the dough). Cover dough with plastic wrap and allow to rest 10 minutes. Heat 1 inch of oil in a large cast iron skillet to 350 - 360 degrees over stove top. Divide rested dough into 8 equal pieces. Working with floured hands and one piece of dough at a time (keep other pieces covered with plastic wrap), pat dough out on a lightly floured surface into a 6-inch circle and gently drop into hot oil, and cook until golden brown, then flip and cook opposite side until golden brown. Remove from oil and drain onto a plate or baking sheet lined with paper towels. Serve warm with Navajo Taco topping or for dessert, spread with honey butter.

Any comments or recommendations please?
