Indian Fry Bread

Where I'm from in Montana, our church connection has had a school for Indian students open now for at least fourty years. Affectionately abbreviated NIBS, Northwest Indian Bible School has an Indian taco sale almost every year in the Alberton community. When I went to Bible college in Ohio the cooks that had been out at NIBS every now and then made Indian tacos for us. Any fry bread that was left over went to me. :-) Hope you enjoy this recipe from the NIBS cook, Ron "Grampa" Forrider.

2 1/2 c. flour
1/2t. salt
1 t. baking powder
1t. oil
1c. warm milk

Mix dry ingredients in a medium bowl, add wet to dry. Knead dough till smooth, approximately 4-5 minutes. Cut into halves and each half into halves until your sections are the size of large walnuts. Cover and let rest 10-15 minutes. Heat 1" oil in pan on medium high. Work dough into rounds till fairly thin and fry till golden on one side, turn over and repeat. The frying will be fairly quick, so pay attention. Put on a pan in the oven to keep warm or on a plate covered with a towel. To make Indian tacos, fill hot fry bread with your choice of taco fillings such as: re-fried beans, taco meat, lettuce tomatoes, olives, and sour creme. ENJOY!
