Navajo and Pueblo Indian Fry Bread

 

I have made lots of yeast based naan bread, and finally gave these fry bread a go. It was like a quick version of naan bread, but still had great flavour and texture. I guess when I am in a hurry, this recipe will be my option.

I lived in Albuquerque for 17 years and love Fry Bread with my Chili. Isleta Pueblo,which dates back to the 1400's, is 13 miles south of ABQ. A friend was married to an Isleta princess and she taught me about Fry Bread. Thanks for this version.
