Navajo Fry Bread

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Servings: 7


  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups white wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/3 cups warm water
  • honey for serving
  • melted butter for serving
  • powdered sugar for serving


  • In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients. Add water a little at a time and knead until you have a soft, but not sticky dough. (you probably will not need all of the water)
  • Let it rest for 5 minutes.
  • Heat a pot with enough oil for deep frying.
  • Tear off a piece of dough about the size of a peach. Pat and stretch it into a thin round. If you can do this by hand like an expert pizza maker - fantastic! If not, place on a lightly floured surface and with your fingertips, stretch the dough outward. Make it as thin as possible without the dough breaking. Poke a hole in the middle.
  • Place in the hot oil and fry until golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels.
  • Serve, drizzled with honey or melted butter and powdered sugar.
