These are sssssoooooo good! We use this recipe to make Indian Fry Bread Tacos or to serve along-side soup. They are also good served with powered sugar poured all over them and served with coffee! Our family is large and I usually triple or quadruple the recipe (really!). Leftovers (if any…rare that there are) are treasured and fought over in our home.
4 cups plain flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon yeast
1 1/2 cup warm water
Dump everything into a bowl and mix well. (Yes, everything!)
Let rise for about an hour in an oven set on 200 degrees with oven door open or set in a very warm place (like on the top of oven that is lit).
Then, do one of two things: either pull off chunks to fry or take some dough out and place on a floured mat and flatten slightly so that you can cut out pieces to fry. Make sure your pieces are not too thick (but they can be long).
Heat some oil in a pot for deep-frying. Carefully drop pieces of dough in (two or three at a time). Watch closely. Flip when browning. Take out to drain. If a piece is thick, check to make sure it is cooked through. Serve.
(To serve as Indian Fry Bread Tacos, simply serve with taco meat, cheese, sour cream, and toppings. If your pieces are longish and flat, place ingredients on top of bread, if they are chunky, serve alongside of. You can also split a piece and place yummies inside. Anyway you do it, it will be delish!)
