Navajo Fry Bread

by 247tasty

The recipe comes from my aunt who has been living for many, many years in the indigenous tribe. As a child, I have delightful memories of visits and culture. My aunt learned to make Indian Fry Bread from family friends and gave me the recipe a few years ago. Fried bread has many names, including Indian Fry Bread, Navajo Fry Bread, Navajo Tacos, and Scones.

The tacos made from Indian Fry Bread have a meaty mix of taco-seasoned boiled beef and boasts and then all the fasteners like sour cream, shredded lettuce, and tomatoes. Taco is deliciously crispy on the outside, soft and chewy at the inside. Home-made hamburgers, Meatloaf Hamburger Patties, and homemade pizzas made with the best pizza Dough Recipe are among our other favourite weekend dining ideas.

These big fried dough disks can be served salty or sweet, take little time to prepare, and are made using the same simple ingredients as they were created first. An easy Navajo Fry Bread is made out of a very simple dough. I’m going to bet you have all you need to do already. There is no need for deep fryer or oil gallons. In a pot with just one inch of oil or less, you can make Easy Navajo Fry Bread.

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 25 minutes
Serves: 9


2 cups oil for frying
4 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons baking powder
2 tablespoons salt
2 ½ cups warm milk


1. Heat 1 inch of vegetable oil and lard in a large, heavy-bottomed frying pan to 185 degrees C.

2. Combine flour, baking powder, salt, and milk in a large mixing bowl. Mix well. After the dough is gathered, shape it and pull it down flat.
