NAVAJO FRY BREAD I
- In a large bowl mix together flour, non-fat dry milk powder, baking powder, and salt. Cut in 5 tablespoons of the lard into the dry mixture until it resembles fine crumbs. Add the ice water and mix until the dough pulls cleanly away from the sides of the bowl.
- Cover with a towel and set aside for 2 hours.
- Divide the dough into two large pieces. Shape each piece into a circle. Roll each piece out on a lightly floured board to 1/4 inch thick. Make 2 parallel cuts through the dough without cutting all the way through. Let the dough rest briefly.
- Heat the remaining lard in a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Once it is hot, add the first shaped dough. Fry for 4-5 minutes on the first side, until golden, turn over and finish cooking on the second side for 3-4 minutes. Remove the bread from the skillet and drain onto paper towels. Sprinkle with sea salt, if desired. Keep warm while second section cooks.
- Cut bread into wedges. Serve warm.

AUTHENTIC NAVAJO INDIAN FRY BREAD (TACO BREAD)
Step by easy step recipe for a Native American all-purpose flat bread dating back to the nineteenth century. Fry bread is considered a food of inter-tribal unity and is made at all Indian pow wows. It has a crispy outside and a chewy inside. Serve with butter & honey, powdered sugar, or cinnamon & sugar. Or add 'taco' ingredients to the top to make an Indian taco bread salad. You can also fill these with anything then fold them up to eat. Or simply serve plain with soup, stew, etc. *EDITED TO ADD: This is an old recipe and I know many of us no longer use so much salt - if that's the case for you then I suggest REDUCING THE SALT BY HALF.
