Navajo Fry Bread

This is ridiculously easy to make. Mix, knead, spread, fry and enjoy!

Here's how;

2 1/2 C Flour
2 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
"Enough Water to Make a Dough" (About a cup and a half)

To Fry:
Medium to Large Skillet (or Wok)
Cooking Oil (any kind works) or Lard
Mix, then knead for up to ten minutes. I found that forming small balls, and then kneading them separately helped a LOT. While kneading, pour your oil into a pan (about medium heat) and let heat. Once you have your dough kneaded and using your fingers and hands to pat thin (about pancake size), drop into oil and let fry. Flip, then set aside. I covered mine with honey butter while they sat and dried, making them super delicious.

Notes: After kneading for awhile it begins to feel like pizza dough, use your fingers to spread the dough thinner as if it were a pizza crust for a light and fluffier taste.
