Today on the menu is this incredibly simple bubbly tender and chewy fried bread that is known as navajo bread there’s so many uses for it but for this video i’m just going to be focusing on the bread alone all right let’s get into the recipe start off by warming up some whole milk in a sauce pot to about 100.

Degrees fahrenheit and add a pinch or two of salt along with some deliciously sweet honey next add in the all-purpose flour to a standing electric mixer with a few teaspoons of baking powder and give it a good stir to evenly incorporate the two together then add in the warm seasoned milk and mix this on low to medium speed.

For three to four minutes until the dough forms into a solid ball and pulls away from the side of the bowl place the dough onto a clean working surface and roll it into a relatively even log and evenly portion it roll each dough slice into a smooth ball and transfer them to a tray and cover with a.

Damp towel to prevent them from drying out while you roll out each round now these are intended to be fairly thick so make sure not to roll them out too thin otherwise they’ll turn into more of a cracker than a soft chewy bread.

Once they’re all rolled out heat up an inch or two of flavorless oil in a shallow pan to around 350 degrees fahrenheit and begin frying each round until bubbly and a light golden brown just be careful not to over fry these otherwise you’ll cook out all the moisture and they’ll lose that chewy texture that make these so so special.

transfer each piece to a plate lined with paper towels to catch any excess grease and repeat the process until they are all fried up once they’re all done it is always best to eat these warm but they do hold up very well in the fridge for a few days as long as they’ve been properly cooled.

And stored in a plastic bag i love to eat these straight out of the fryer with a little bit of honey for dessert but they work perfectly for a sandwich a fun sort of gordita style taco night or base for a delicious hash style egg breakfast oh taste test time this looks good man navajo bread sopapillas indian fry bread definitely a couple names for it i just.
