Family Fry Bread
Each tribe has their own recipe for fry bread. This is a recipe that I came across as a teenage girl while staying at my great-grandma's house. Grandma was Native American, and I found that this recipe creates a delicious fry bread for Indian tacos. Fry bread is commonly used for making Indian tacos, but is also good with honey butter or cinnamon-sugar and butter for a dessert. Warm milk can be substituted for the water.
Recipe Summary test
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
If the dough is too dry add more warm water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until dough comes together.
I like to weigh my dough out and divide it to make equal proportioned fry bread. Original instructions say to shape fry bread by simply tossing it back and forth between lightly floured hands. The serving size is approximate; you may have more or less depending on size of fry bread you make. I use a cast-iron skillet, as it distributes heat more evenly.
