Mom’s Indian Fry Bread

by 247tasty

My grandmother is a fan of fry bread. Whenever we visit her she always prepares this for us. She even taught us how to make it. It’s really easy and you just need simple ingredients. So what is a fry bread? It’s a flat dough bread that’s deep-fried in oil. A simple bread that goes along with just anything. As for me, I like to top it with honey, berries, powdered sugar, and cinnamon and serve it with coffee for an afternoon dessert. You can top it with a traditional taco fixing like ground beef, lettuce, tomatoes, and cheese for an easy Indian Taco. And, it can also be eaten alone.

The simplicity of this recipe is nothing like its taste especially with the combination of toppings that you can put on it. It can be a great gift for a friend or someone whom you want to introduce to native foods. You can even bring this to a picnic or camping (just like what we usually do with my grandmother). It is also great to serve when your friends are coming over and paired with different toppings. I am proud of this recipe because it’s like my grandmother’s legacy. I’m sure to pass this to my kids, too.


2 cups sifted flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoon baking powder
