    Indian fry bread is the food of the Gods. It's cooked in oil though.

    I'm pretty sure I could live solely on that stuff. I've never made it but I might try to tomorrow.

    I have cooked it in a little oil, but prefer a dab of butter.........and I don't know if it's officially 'Indian fry bread' recipe that you see sold on the market. I've never tried it. Is that fry bread made with plain bread dough or does it have cornmeal or other ingredients? Isn't it deep fried? IDK

    I just know my great grandmother (who was 1/2 Cherokee) would do this in a small fry pan, using regular bread dough. The top & bottom are brown & crusty, with a fluffy center.....dammit, now I gotta make some

    If you do, I find it's best to let the dough raise atleast once.....an hour or hour & a half? Then knead it for a few minutes to get the air pockets out. Pinch off a piece about the size of a jumbo egg or the size of a small ball that fits in the palm of your cupped hand. Roll it out flat, cut a couple of slits in the center

    What is it with the slits? Some tribes put a hole in the center and, that has to be related to the same thing; but I don't understand why or what it does that makes it different.

    oooh those sound good too, but yep different than what I do. As I said I don't know if grandma's recipe was like that or not. I just have the memory of her doing fry bread & loving it. So when I was doing my own cooking I tried to recreate it, but didn't think about the actual ingredients or process........since I would often make homemade bread anyway, I just used that
