Navajo frybread

The famous “frybread!”  Here is a picture of a frybread I recently purchased from a roadside concession stand for $1.50.  The usual ingredients for a frybread include flour, baking powder, and salt.  I have learned from other Navajos that they put other ingredients in there to make the frybread fluffier and puffier.  On this day, I put salt and honey on mine for taste.  This bread is eaten in a variety of ways with powdered sugar to jelly to making Navajo burgers.  Many tribes have their own name for the native fry bread and also add other ingredients to sweeten the bread.
