Navajo Fry Bread


3 cups flour
1 Tbs. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup milk
1 1/2 cups warm water
Lard or shortening


Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add the milk, blending it thoroughly. Add the warm water in small amounts and knead the dough until it is soft but not sticky. Cover the bowl and let the dough stand 15 minutes. Pull off large egg size balls of dough and roll them into rounds about 1/8 inch thick. Punch a hole in the
center of each round to allow the dough to puff. In a heavy skillet fry the rounds in lard or shortening until bubbles appear on the top. Turn the bread and fry it on the other side until it is golden. Serve the fry bread hot with honey or jam.
