  • 2 cups 2 (240g) all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons 2 baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon 1/2 salt

  • 1 cup 1 (240ml) warm water

  • Vegetable oil, for frying


  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • Gradually add the warm water to the dry ingredients, mixing to form a soft dough. If the dough is too sticky, you can add a bit more flour. Conversely, if it’s too dry, add a touch more water.
  • Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for a few minutes until it’s smooth and elastic.
  • Divide the dough into 6 equal portions and shape each into a ball.
  • Heat about 2 inches of vegetable oil in a deep skillet or fryer to 350°F (175°C).
  • Flatten each dough ball into a disk, about 1/4 inch thick. You can use your hands or a rolling pin.
  • Carefully place one dough disk into the hot oil and fry for about 2-3 minutes on each side or until it’s golden brown and puffed up.
  • Use a slotted spoon to remove the frybread from the oil and drain it on paper towels.
  • Repeat the frying process with the remaining dough disks.
  • Serve your Indian Frybread hot with your choice of savory or sweet toppings.
  • Savor the crispy comfort of your Indian Frybread!
