    I need some help from my homies in the Southwest...

    There's something I had with butter and drizzled honey on my trip to Arizona that blew me away---
    and I need to add a great version of it to my repertoire of 'good stuff I can make'...

    I'm talkin' bout your Grandmama's recipe...

    Frybread...

    but all it is flour, salt, baking powder.

    Let me say I am not from the Southwest but I have eaten fry bread.


    Traditional Navajo Recipes
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Basic Fry Bread Recipe - 2 variations
    Recipe by Elaya K Tsosie

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Version #1
    2 cups Flour
    1 tsp. Salt
    3 tsp. Baking Powder
    1 cup Water
    Version #2
    3 cups Flour
    1 tsp. Salt
    1 tbs. Baking Powder
    1 1/2 cup water
    1 tbs. Shortening (cut in)
    Using the ingredients from either version above, mix ingredients and let sit for 10-15 minutes.
    Break off a ball of dough about golf ball size and pat out no thicker than 1/4 inch. (In some tribal traditions a hole is always made in the center which has spiritual significance)

    Fry in deep hot oil to a light golden brown, turn once to brown both sides. (Oil is hot enough if a small test piece of dough dropped in the oil begins cooking almost immediately and rises to the top.) Drain bread well and pat with paper towel to remove excess oil. Keep covered in a bowl while cooking to keep bread warm.

    Serving - Usually eaten like bread with soup, stew or posole

    Variations - Eat with honey, powdered sugar, cinnamon.

    Thanks...
    I should have included that I knew it was gonna be simple--I mean with just a few ingredients...

    I had it at 2 or 3 places during my lil' vacation there, and it was 'extra good' at one of the places...

    "native American" stores usually have boxes of mix for sale.

    As I said, flour, salt, water, maybe shortening. The box might add a picture to look at.

    a note if you use the same ingredients and bake it in a dutch oven or a frying pan or wrapped around a stick over the fire you would call it Bannock.:) lethal
