   Fry bread is one of the most popular and widespread of the modern
   Native American Indian foods.  There are two main types of this bread
   that are used for everything from a quick snack to an everyday dinner
   bread. In the North and East regions, a fried yeast bread is most
   popular, while in the South and west regions a recipe utilizing
   baking powder in lieu of yeast is the more common form.  In Texas the
   Alabama-Coushatta use the same recipe as the Navajo Fry Bread listed
   below.
 
   In a mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Stir
   in milk and knead briefly with lightly oiled hands until smooth. Rub
   the remainder of the one tablespoon of oil over the dough. Cover and
   let sit in a warm area for about 30 minutes. Either pat or roll out
   enough dough to fit in the palm of your hand in a circle about one
   quarter inch thick. Deep fry in a hot 350 degree oil for about one
   minute per side or until golden brown. Makes 10-12 pieces.
 
   Note: Dough can also be cut into triangles, squares or perfect
   circles if rolled out and a cookie cutter like device is used. Serve
   with honey, maple syrup, or as a bread for meals.
