Type of Dish: Contemporary & Traditional


  • 1 1/2 cups “warm” water
  • 1 Tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 3 cups unbleached flour
  • Directions:
    Mix the flour, salt, and baking powder together in a bowl. Sift or stir this together.
    Add the “warm” water to this mixture and stir until all the dry ingredients are mixed well.
    Put oil on your hands; remove dough from bowl and knead until the dough is smooth.
    When the dough is smooth & soft, rub oil over the top of your dough.
    Place back into the bowl, cover with a dry cloth & let rest for “30″ minutes.
    Begin heating your lard, oil, or grease so it is very hot.
    Pull the dough at its edges until you have small circles.
    Drop circles into the hot grease until golden brown, then turn over until golden brown on the other side as well.
    Add enough grease/oil so the dough can deep fry.
    Dip cooked fry bread into sugar, or spread butter, jam or jelly on top and eat.
    This is a staple for feasts after sweats, at Pow Wow, an Honor dinner or any cultural gathering.
