Marge Pahmahmie was well know for her fry bread in Horton Kansas. She use to make dishpan's of dough for many of the Indian functions! This is a smaller version of her recipe, for 5 or 6 rounds of bread.

Great recipe. I made mine to use for Indian Taco's. I haven't had them in ages but when I found this recipe I knew that it was time to revisit these yummies! The recipe makes perfect fry bread that is puffy and delicious. Made for Pic A Chef, Spring 2013
