"As far as I know this is the original recipe for Navajo Bread. It's is great with honey and butter. The Navajo's put chiles, cheese, onion, lettuce and beans on it, and call them Nava Tacos."

Another good fry bread recipe! Only thing though, you might want to edit the salt. Two tablespoons is -alot- of salt. I only used about 1 or 2 teaspoons last time I made this. Other than that it is good! Mine always seem to come out a little small, haha! ^-^
as a real navajo fried bread eater i think someone goof..typo error...instead of 2 tablespoon of salt..try..2 teaspoon of salt..this is definately too salty...or in my opinion i go for 1 teaspoon of salt. Other than that i think it will be fine.
This recipe was not so good. There was too much salt and too much liquid. I found a different recipe on the net and tried it and it was perfect. It was much like this one but with less than 1/2 the salt and not so much liquid. If you cut down on the salt and liquid, this actually turns out well. Perhaps there was a typo in this recipe.
My Navajo adopted mother taught me to make Fry Bread with 3 cups flour, 1 cup water, 1 tsp Baking Powder. Because most Navajo would not have access to milk and most frying is done in an open pit or on a wood stove, the recipe is a very simple flat bread that is fried. It is the topping that makes the meal.
This is the recipe I have been looking for. I did reduce the salt as was advised by others. Will make this again. Thanks!!!
Way too much salt! Cut it down and you will get a wonderful fry bread and you can use it for anything. I'll be making it again.
This is a "family size" recipe that makes a lot of fry bread. I would 1/2 it or even 1/3 it for two people. I found the dough to be far too sticky to pat out into individual servings. Next time I will add less milk and roll out the dough to make it thin enough to make tacos. It tasted good, but needs modifications to our taste.
I believe the amount of salt is not correct, maybe cut down to 2 teaspoons. Very salty otherwise!!!

This soda bread is dense and moist, thanks to the tangy addition of buttermilk.
