Indian Fry Bread

This is a fried flat bread with many uses includes topping with anything from refried beans, lettuce, tomato, shredded cheese, salsa and sour cream to honey or your favorite jam with peanut butter. I've even topped it with chili, shredded cheese and diced onions.


It's easy and inexpensive to make and keeps well in the freezer when wrapped tightly with saran wrap or foil. I personally love the flavor of cooking this bread with Sesame or Peanut oil the best ;-)


  • 2 1/2 cups flour, plus extra for rolling dough
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup water
  • Oil for frying (Canola, Corn, Peanut or Sesame oil works best to avoid cooking oil smoke point)


Combine the ingredients, except oil, in a large bowl. Heat the oil in a skillet to 375 degrees F. Remove a ball of dough large enough to flatten in to the size of a large flour tortilla. The thickness you choose to roll is up to you but I've found you don't want it to be over a half an inch thick.

Flatten with a rolling pin on a well floured surface and it doesn't matter what shape the dough is once the dough is rolled whether it be round, square or haphazard.


Place rolled dough in the hot oil, cooking for a minute or two on each side until golden. Remove to a plate covered with a cloth towel or paper towels.

Continue cooking rolled dough in batches if you rolled the dough on the thin side.
