Indian Fry Bread

This bread is very versatile, quick and easy. It can be eaten as a snack with honey and butter or used as the base of other dishes such as indian style tacos. I've also used these breads in place of pitas for making falafel sandwiches. Give them a try any time of day.

  1. Heat up 1/2 inch of oil in a frying pan to 375-400 degrees. The temperature of the oil is very critical for this to turn out properly. Too cold and the breads will be greasy. Too hot and you will smoke the oil which is unhealthy and it won't taste good.

  2. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.

  3. Mix warm water in the bowl slowly until it forms a ball.

  4. Pull small egg-sized pieces off of the ball and smash them down to about 1/4 inch thickness on a flat surface dusted with the cornmeal.

  5. Fry the flatten balls until lightly golden brown on each side.

  6. Let the breads cool on paper towls. Sprinkle with sea salt as they are cooling
