During my missions trip to Many Farms, Arizona, I had the pleasure of getting to know a Navajo girl named Megan who attended the church we were serving at. On our last day, she taught me and a few other girls how to make fry bread. The ingredients are simple: flour (seen it substituted with blue corn flour), backing powder, salt, and water. The tough part was moulding the bread into thin sheets where it would go in a frying pan with a thin layer of oil simmering inside.
This is a traditional Navajo bread, most Navajo will know how to make this at a young age. It can also be eaten with salty toppings like curry and meats, or with sweet things like honey with powdered sugar.
I’ve been back in Toronto for 2 days now, and realized I forgot to copy the recipe down. I just remembered ’12 handfuls of flour, and half a palm of salt…’ the rest i guessed, but it turned out alright, i guess? anything deep fried and slathered in honey is fine by me. 🙂
