If you’re looking for a snack that’s soft, fluffy, and has the perfect blend of sweet and savoury, then you’ve come to the right place. Today, we’ll be journeying into the heart of Indian cuisine to discover an amazing dish – the Indian Frybread.
- 2 cups All-Purpose Flour (Maida)
- 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
- 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
- 2 tablespoons Yogurt
- 1 tablespoon Sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon Salt
- Water, as required
- Oil, for frying
How To Make INDIAN FRYBREAD RECIPE
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Mix these dry ingredients well.
- Add the yogurt into the dry ingredients. Start kneading the dough, adding water gradually as required.
- Once the dough comes together, knead it for about 5-7 minutes until it is smooth and elastic.
- Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest for an hour. This will allow the dough to rise and the gluten to develop, resulting in soft and fluffy frybread.
- After an hour, divide the dough into equal-sized balls (about the size of a golf ball).
- Heat oil in a deep frying pan. While the oil is heating up, roll out each ball of dough into a thin, round disc.
- To test if the oil is hot enough, drop a small piece of dough into the oil. If it floats to the top almost immediately, the oil is ready.
- Carefully slide the rolled dough into the hot oil. Press gently on the dough with a slotted spoon to help it puff up.
- Fry the bread until it turns golden brown on both sides.
- Remove the bread from the oil using a slotted spoon and drain it on paper towels to remove any excess oil.
- Serve your Indian Frybread hot with a side of Chole (spicy chickpea curry) or simply with a drizzle of honey or a sprinkle of powdered sugar.
- Make sure your dough is smooth and well-kneaded. This ensures your frybread turns out soft and fluffy.
- The oil temperature is crucial for achieving the perfect puffiness. If the oil is too hot, the bread will brown quickly but won’t puff up. If it’s too cool, the bread will absorb too much oil and become greasy.
- Remember to drain the frybread on paper towels after frying to remove excess oil. This will keep your Frybread crisp and light.
