This is the same recipe I make, so rather than post it I'll just give this one 5 stars! Only difference is my recipe calls for 2 teaspoons baking powder and after you mix the dry ingredients with the water there is no kneading. You just cover it and let it sit for an hour. Than I scoop out balls of dough with my cookie scoop, roll flat into 4 inch circles and fry! We use this for tacos, and it is one of my husbands favorite meals.

yep, authentic, basic fry bread. I was taught to use a little more baking powder too. Knead just to make it into a dough, then use hands to flatten it out, instead of a roller, poke a little hole in the middle. I have not let it rest, but, I will next time.
