As far as I know the is the original recipe for Navajo Bread. It's is great with honey and butter. The Navajo's put chile peppers, cheese, onion, lettuce and beans on it, and call them Nava Tacos.
INGREDIENTS (for 9 servings):
- 2 cups oil for frying
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons baking powder
- 2 tablespoons salt
- 2 1/2 cups warm milk
In a large heavy bottomed frying pan, heat 1 inch of vegetable oil or lard to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C).
In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and milk; mix well. When the dough has pulled together, form it into small balls and pat them flat.
Place 3 or 4 at a time into the hot oil. When the rounds begin to bubble, flip them over and cook until golden. Drain on paper towels and serve hot.
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
