Indian Fry Bread Dessert

Top fry bread with strawberries, blueberries, bananas, ice cream and whipped cream.

Indian Fry Bread

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups warm water
Oil, for frying


Put flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Mix well, add warm water and stir until dough begins to ball up. On a lightly floured surface knead dough. Do not over-work the dough.

Heat oil to 350 degrees in a frying pan or kettle. Lightly flour surface and pat and roll out baseball size pieces of dough. Cut hole in middle with a knife (so the dough will fry flat) to 1/4-inch thickness and place in oil and cook until golden brown and flip over and cook opposite side until same golden brown. Dough is done in about 3 minutes depending on oil temperature and thickness of dough.

After fry bread is done top with favorite topping or, chile or pinto beans and cheese first, then cover with lettuce and tomatoes, onions, green chile and you have an Indian Taco. Melissa makes the most wonderful fry bread, as shown in the photo. I love the Indian Tacos. I also love to just eat fry bread with a little honey and the dessert the girls made really looks good.


  1. Wow that looks really tasty! I've never had fry bread before.

  2. what do you mean "cut a hole in the middle"?

  3. Just make a slit in the middle so when it is frying the bread will stay a little flatter.
