Navajo fry bread 3

Yield: 8 fry breads

Measure Ingredient
4 cups All-purpose flour
1 tablespoon Double-acting baking powder
1 teaspoon Salt
1½ cup Water
1 cup Vegetable shortening

In a bowl whisk together the flour, the baking powder, and the salt, stir in the water, and knead the mixture on a floured surface until it forms a soft but not sticky dough. Let the dough stand, covered with a kitchen towel, for 15 minutes. Pull off egg-size pieces of the dough and oat and stretch them into ¼-inch thick rounds. Poke a hole witha finger through the center of each round so that the breads will fry evenly. In a large heavy skillet heat the shortening over moderately high heat until it is hot but not smoking, in it fry the rounds, 1 at a time, for 2 minutes on each side, or until they are golden, and transfer the breads as they are fried to paper towels to drain.
