Thanks to my cousin Fun Shelly for frying up this idea. With memories of a steamy kitchen, laughter, family, and fry bread topped with everything, I had to recreate this dish with a modern twist of toppings and make it
GF/V Indian Fry Bread
By: Bekie A.
2 cups of King Arthur GF Flour (cup for cup)
1/2 T sea salt
1/2 T Baking Powder
Pinch of sugar & Baking Soda
***whisk the dry ingredients together
1/2 cup of dairy-free milk (we used Walnut) mixed with 2 tsp of apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup of water
***coconut oil for frying
Whisk dry ingredients together. Add in wet ingredients. Stir until dough comes together. It should be sticky. Allow to rest for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, heat an iron skillet on high heat and add 2-3 Tbsp of coconut oil.
Pinch off a small fist size ball of dough. Roll out into a circle on a floured surface.
Use a big spatula to transfer to iron skillet. Once it begins to bubble, flip over.
Once golden, remove from the pan and place onto paper towels. Pat dry. You can serve the traditional way topped with beans. Or, we topped ours with southwest burgers, and all the fixings.
