How to make fry bread
1. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a small basin. Stir in the boiling water to create a soft dough. For 30 minutes, cover and leave standing.
2. Split the dough in two. Each part should be rolled into a 6-inch circle on a lightly dusted surface.
3. Heat one inch of oil to 375 degrees in an electric skillet. Bread should be fried in heated oil for two to three minutes on each side or until golden brown. Add chosen toppings and serve.
How are puffy fried foods made?
Baking powder is used in this recipe to give the fried bread its puffy, pillow-like structure. To leaven their bread, other tribes may use yeast or starters. The dough for fry bread is frequently mixed in Native American homes in the morning, covered with a cloth, and left to leaven until required.
How long is fry bread good for? (Are you able to arrive early?)
Although fresh fry bread is preferable, it can be frozen and reheated provided it is properly wrapped. Wrapped in foil, bake the bread at 375 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes, or until it is warm to the touch. The foil should then be opened and heated for 5 minutes to gently crisp it.
