Frybread


And what is frybread you ask? It's a staple in the Indians' diet. It is absolutely delicious. They make "Navajo Tacos" which has meat (mainly mutton), green chile, lettuce, tomato and beans. Some people like it with honey on top. I like mine plain with a little salt. Here's a recipe if you want to try making it:


4 cups white flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder

Combine all ingredients. Add about 1 1/2 cups lukewarm water and knead until dough is soft but not sticky. Shape dough into balls the size of a small peach. Shape into patties by hand; dough should be about l/2 inch thick. Make a small hole in the center of the round. Fry one at a time in about l inch of hot lard or shortening in a heavy pan. Brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels.
