Here is the fry bread reciepe we make.
6 cup flour
2 tablespoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
2 1/2 cup warm water
In large bowl, mix together all ingredients except water and oil. I
add the water and mix it, (adjust the water to flour ratio if you need to).
Let it rest for a few minutes. I divide it into how many breads I
want and then flatten those pieces.
Once the oil is hot I start cooking the bread and people start
eating, I cook until it's all done.
