These tasty little pan-fried biscuits are very good and super fast to prepare! It took me a little more than 1 cup of water to make a batter consistency. I fried the first half in canola oil (didn't have any shortening or lard) and then I experimented and fried the second half of the recipe in a lightly oiled non-stick pan. The canola batch was a lot more flavorful, but the non-stick batch was a lot lighter. The dry milk really added richness to the bread. Thank you for this relaying this terrific Seneca recipe!
Wow! I've spent years trying to find a fry bread that came close to my grandmother's. This is it!! Thank you so much for posting this and I'm sure I will use it for a long, long time. I also had to add a bit more water, but not a problem. This bread is awesome with cinnamon sugar and butter or by itself.

I’m over the hill and heading down the back side at a rapid rate it seems, single, and retired now. My loves? Good friends, most of all. After that I guess it would be wildlife and photographing it. In fact, I love anything that deals with wild animals and the outdoors. Then comes playing with my dog and making a mess trying to cook in the kitchen or around the fire pit, grill or smoker while enjoying a good tumbler of whiskey (whisky).
