    tasb's Note:

    This has taken me 9 years to perfect. First I was given the dry ingredients then for about 4 years I made it one way, then I seen my cousin make hers and knowing she comes from an awesome Fried Bread making family I tinkered with the water until I got the right consistency, that was another 5 years. The cooking time includes the minimum amount of time it needs to sit.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Mix all ingredients together and cover and let sit AT LEAST 1 hour if not longer, the longer is sits the fluffier it will be. When you mix it together there might be a little flour left and slightly sticky that is okay. This is the type of fried bread you will be picking up to shape.
    2. 2
      After it sits, heat up some oil for deep-fat frying, I use a deep-fryer at home too. You can use a skillet filled with about 1 inch of oil. Heat until 375 F, or a small piece bubbles and browns in a couple minutes. When ready to fry, oil your hands and counter top. Divide dough into 3-4 pieces, When you cup your hands together like you are holding something you don't want to get away that is the amount of dough you want. Then pat it out to just a little bigger then your whole hand and put into the oil. Fry on one side until nice and golden brown, it can be a couple minutes to 5 minutes depending on what you are using, a frying pan will take less time and a deep fryer will take longer but is more safe way of frying. When golden using tongs flip over and fry on the other side until nice and golden.
    3. 3
      Take out and drain on paper towel, and eat with butter and jam, serve as a side bread, or top with chili, cheese, lettuce and tomato for Indian Tacos.
    4. 4
      I use oil to shape because it helps the dough not to stick to your hands and it keeps your oil cleaner because you won't have flour coming off the fried bread and falling to the bottom. At home I usually make it to serve with chili or soup, and the rare occasions we eat it for breakfast. We try not to eat it too often because we will get fat hahaha.

      This was really good. I used to make Indian tacos. Pre-made dough so it sat a few hours so It made a quick easy meal.

      Very delicious and easy to make. They puffed up very nicely and had a lovely crisp texture on the outside. My DH gave me permission to "make them again soon!" Thank you for sharing!!
