Fry Bread

If you drive through Arizona in the American Southwest all of the Indian Reservations sell these along the side of the road and occasionally I get cravings for them.

Ingredients

Honey

4 cups flour

1/2 tsp salt

1 Tbs baking powder

1 1/2 cup warm water

oil for frying

 

Instruction

Combine dry ingredients, stir in water, kneed until soft but not sticky, shape into Tenis ball sized portions. Cover them with a warm damp cloth.

In a frying pan heat an inch of Avocado oil to med-high. Flatten out a dough ball to cover an area the size of your outstretched hand, poke a hole in the center.

Place (one at a time) gently into the oil and cook for 1-2 minutes per side until golden brown. They will shrink and puff up a bit while cooking.

Remove from oil and place on paper towels to drain the excess oil. Once slightly cooled the traditional topping is to add a generous amount of honey and to eat them while they are still warm.
