"There are a few variations of American Indian Fry Bread, according to the region, and some use yeast while others use baking powder. Some are rolled out and some are patted flat in the palms of the hands. This is a basic one that I use. It's very simple and easy to double, triple, or halve it. The rule is 1 tsp of baking powder to 1 cup of flour and a pinch of salt. Enough water to make a dough, knead it until its not sticky. You can let it rest or not. Divide into balls that will result in a flat round of about 4 inches. Flour the hands and then put a ball in the palm of one hand and press it with the palm of the other, and then reverse, till it is about 1/2 inch flat. Poking a little hole in the middle prevents it from puffing up too much. Then they are deep fried till golden brown, but I don't like to use a whole lot of oil so I use only about 3 inches deep; enough to cover the risen bread, but at least 3 of inches is necessary. Toppings can be such as confectioners' sugar, honey, butter, tomato sauce, jelly, or whatever suits your fancy. This recipe is a lot like Dissie's, and Dissie had hers up first. I changed the title from Native American Fry Bread to Native American Indian Fry Bread just because there are already a few with the former title, so to tell this one from those."
