Homemade Fry Bread

Recently, I  remembered how much I loved fry bread the first time I tried it during high school food class and I began to have the urge to try some again.So I searched through my binder for it and found the recipe from when it was made in a student demonstration in which I wrote down for marks. Its still in good shape and I was so happy I still had it for use.

It was really simple to follow in directions and had very basic ingredients being used. The frying or deep frying is probably the hardest part to the recipe;however that's based on if you have ever done it before. The best advice to frying is to not have the temperature to high ,but high enough to fry something quickly. If you don't follow this advice you most liking have oil spitting and your more liking to get a burn by the oil, which isn't a fun site .So try your best to keep safe when your frying or deep frying with oils or fats.

Anyways, the fry bread is a simple food to make and doesn't have anything special added to it,but can certainly have special spreads for it.The fry bread can have jam,jelly,honey,peanut or any other of your favorites place upon it.Fry bread can be made into any shape, big or small that you want and can be used for wraps,sandwiches or anything you like.I made mine into small balls and sifted icing sugar on top for a dessert.

The fry bread that I made was light and chewy with a slight sweetness.The icing sugar helped the bread with visual appearance and as well gave more sweetness. I was satisfied with this fry bread and interested in trying out different variation of the recipe.

So try out the recipe for yourself and look up different variation for the recipe.Each Native American or Canadian group has a different variation or take on the recipe.
