2 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup milk
Deep hot fat in fry pan or fryer

Directions:
Directions:
Sift dry ingredients. Lightly stir in milk. Add more flour as necessary to make a dough you can handle. Knead and work the dough on a floured board with floured hands until smooth. Pinch off fist-sized lumps and shape into a disk -- everyone has their own characteristic shapes .(Shape affects the taste, by the way, because of how it fries). For Indian tacos, the disk must be rather flat, with a depression -- almost a hole -- in the center of both sides. Make it that way if the fry bread is going to have some sauce over it. Smaller, round ones are made to put on a plate. Fry in fat (about 375) until golden and done on both sides, about 5 minutes. Drain on absorbent paper.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I used this in Vacation Bible School and then used it in Girl Scouts and Pioneers. Navajo bread is served in a variety of ways both sweet and savory. Serve with Jam or with chili over top of it. Wonderful, easy bread. Children can mix this in a baggie and then shape in their hand. A delicious interactive project
