My husband is 1/4 Cherokee and loves to eat this bread plain. My children love to experiment with different toppings. I like to use the fry bread for Native American Tacos.
Sift flour, baking powder, and salt in med bowl make a well in center. Pour in milk. Stir until dough comes together in a shaggy mass. Knead briefly (about 10 turns) sprinkling extra flour so as not be too sticky. Let rest, covered, for 30 minutes.
Heat about 4-5 inches of oil in a deep skillet or electric fryer (375 degrees). Divide dough into 8-10 balls and pat or roll out each one to about 4 inches in diameter to form a flat disc. Fry in oil 2-3 mins each side until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with Cinnamon/sugar, powdered sugar, enjoy plain, or use as the base for taco mixings.
