Indian Fry Bread Recipe

Indian fry bread otherwise known as "Naan" is an easy, cheap, filling, delicious, minimal ingredient, easily amendable, multi-use food.

It can be used in addition with Indian food or soup. You can make sandwiches with them. You can make personal pizzas with them. You can put cinnamon sugar on them for elephant ears. And adding jelly, honey, and/or a nut butter makes for a delicious dessert.

You can make the dry mix ahead of time and just add water, which makes it a great backpacking food.

It easy to amend it with things like cattail pollen, nutrient yeast, chlorophyll powder, protein powder, flax seeds, etc. You can add spices like rosemary for a savory taste.

I have searched the internet for other recipes, but no other Indian fry bread recipe is as easy and simple as the one in my recipe box. Here is the recipe:

Indian Fry Bread
1 1/2 C Flour
1 1/2 t Baking Powder
1/4 t Salt
1/2 C Warm Water

Combine dry ingredients.
Add warm water, knead until soft-not sticky.
Add more flour or water as needed.
Put in bowl, cover, and let stand 15 minutes.
Pull off "egg size" pieces of dough and flaten.
Fry in oil (medium heat)-turn over.
Fry till golden brown.
I personally add a bit more salt while frying.

 Cooking is an important part of Thrivalism.
