vegetable oil for frying, or as needed
The dough was far too sticky for me to work with. In order to flatten it with my fingers I had to use quite a bit of flour on the countertop to get it to where I could work with it. I would use this again but I would cut back the water a bit.
This was so easy to make and its spot on.I didn't use powdered milk and water I just added milk.Oh so good and easy
This Navajo fry bread is the best...serve with refried beans and grated cheese or red chile. Serve as a dessert with honey or powdered sugar. Good feedback S J
This was pretty good. I was looking for a quick bread to go with our soup, besides my usual go-to sourdough biscuits, and this did the trick. I almost rated this at 3 stars, however, because of the lack of important details in the directions.
The directions don't tell you to flatten the dough at all, which is quite essential information! I could tell from the type of recipe and the photo that the dough needed to be flattened before cooking so I did, but someone who is a cooking novice might not know that and just do what the directions say: To form dough into a ball with your hands and then move on to frying. If left in ball form I think it would be VERY difficult to fully cook the bread in the middle without burning the outside, since I had a hard enough time with that even with flattened dough. And since the recipe didn't say to flatten the dough at all, I had to guess at how thick to make the pieces and didn't guess overly well. I flattened to about 1/4-3/8" or so each but the dough rose while cooking to about twice that so, as I mentioned, I had a hard time getting the bread cooked in the middle without burning the outside. I would start with thinner dough next time to get a more golden exterior with a non-doughy middle.
All that said, these were pretty tasty and quick to make, so I will probably try it again with those changes. I think they would also make a yummy, doughnut-like dessert treat rolled in powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar after frying.
I love ths recipe, turns out perfect every time. Tonight I mixed some parsley and pepper in with the dough and used them to eat with falfel instead pita from the store. Thanks so much!
