I am trying to eat healthier now and frying things in Crisco just doesn't seem like the smartest idea. So I did these in coconut oil tonight and we all loved the taste of it. They were not greasy at all.
I just had to share this with all of you!
Indian Fry Bread2 C flour- I use 1 C white, 1 C wheat
1/2 tsp salt
1 heaping Tablespoon baking powder
Almost 1 C water
Coconut oil for frying
Mix the flour, salt and baking powder. Add the water and mix until it forms a soft, elastic dough. Let sit for 15 minutes to 1 hr. In a frying pan heat up coconut oil until water sizzles when dropped in it. Divide the dough into 8 equal portions. Roll out with a rolling pin. Fry in the pan with the oil.
We serve ours with refried beans, lettuce, tomato, olives. You can also add some kind of meat, cheese, avocado. A favorite is just sprinkling powdered sugar on them when they are still warm and eating them that way.
