"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain
This recipe for Indian Fry Bread, by Rick Crawford, is from The Crawford Family Cookbook,
one of the cookbooks created at FamilyCookbookProject.com. We help
families or individuals create heirloom cookbook treasures.
3 cups self rising flour 1 tsp baking powder Hot water
Mix flour and baking powder very well. Add very hot water to make a dough (approx. 1 2/3 cup). Don't over knead. Let set for 10-15 minutes to rise. Fry in oil 300-350º until golden.
For Indian Tacos, pinch a ball bigger than a golf ball but smaller than a tennis ball and use your thumbs and fingers to flatten it out making it thinner in the middle so when it fries up it makes a slight bowl. Don't play with the dough too much or it will toughen up.
