Indian Fry Bread Recipe, This recipe comes from my Aunt who lived among a local Indian tribe for many, many years. I have fond memories of visiting as a child and enjoying the culture.


  • 3 cups of flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups hot water
  • frying oil

How To Make Indian Fry Bread:

In a bowl, add flour, baking powder and salt and mix wellAdd hot water and stir with a spoon. The dough will be sticky.
Form into a ball and leave covered for 45 minutesSeparate the dough into 12-16 balls
Using your palms and fingertips, press each dough into a circle and using your fingertips into a thin, round circle about 4-5 inches in diameter
Heat oil in a frying pan over medium/high heat or a quick frying pan over a frying pan until “hot”
Add one piece of bread at a time to the hot oil and simmer until golden brown, then flip. About a minute on each side *Variable for how hot oil is heated.
Remove it from the oil and let it dry on paper towels.
