Reviews for Fry Bread
"Excellent and easy recipe. You can lighten it and stretch it by dividing the dough into four pieces and rolling out to a four inch round. That makes them about perfect for Navajo tacos!"
"My husband raved and raved about how good this was. I thought it was very good too. I made it with healthy canola oil. One small problem - when I added the hot water, it didn't mix up into a dough, so I added more water until it was a stiff doughy consistency and it turned out fine. Very easy to make."
