• 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1½ cups warm water
  • vegetable oil, for frying


1. In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Whisk until completely combined. Make a well in the center of the bowl and add the warm water. Stir with a wooden spoon until the dough comes together. Transfer the dough onto a lightly floured work surface and knead for a few minutes until the dough is somewhat smooth. Place back in the bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Allow to chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes or up to overnight.

2. Heat the oil in a pot or a skillet with high sides, until very hot. Portion out the dough into golf ball sized balls—you should get about 8 to 10 balls—and then roll out on a lightly floured work surface, until very thin. Poke a hole in the center of the dough to allow steam to escape while frying. Fry the dough rounds, one at a time, for about 1 to 2 minutes per side or until golden brown and crispy. Drain on paper towels and transfer to a wire rack placed over a baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining dough until they are all fried. Keep the fry breads warm in the oven set at 250°F.
