hi everybody my name is Janice Tenorio from turquoise skies and today we'll be making fry bread first of all you will need some flour some salt some baking powder measuring cups honey and have it share and a big mixing bowl first what we'll do is just take four cups flour next week depending on how much salt you want in your favorite and three teaspoons of baking powder level I'll mix it slowly you're going to make a well no after you make the well in the center you get about two to three cups of water make sure it's warm and sport in the world you kind of just mix it up and you'll see we kind of feel the consistency of how much and how flower and then you just continue to mix it with your hand I like the site and is you can see starts coming together and it's okay if your dough kind of starts to get if it's a little wit just add a little flour so really it can't go wrong okay this is the consistency the dough that you want a loose and soft it might be a little sticky but don't worry about that get a drive disk on and just cover it and let it sit for about 20 to 30 minutes later that's it so once your dough has risen this is how it'll look and then then you just I what I do is just go ahead and get them out and make them into little balls so I let them rise a little bit longer 10-15 minutes and you can put this on a baking sheet and then cover it and I have some right now that has risen and this and what I do is for the frying part a deep skillet pan for Dutch oven and fill it with usually use great value vegetable oil or my all-time favorite is the snow-capped art which pretty much grew up on this part and it's the best so what I do is just put some and just let the oil melt and I usually put it on how about an eight too high and then what you're going to do is just going to let the grease mill and it'll be faster you want it to get really hot and be careful don't let no kids around and be very cautious and so oil gets hot you want to take your dough and just shape it into a flat you can use a rolling pin or two Mike I like to do and let's brought up just use my hands to stretch it you kind of just have it between your hands and as you can see it starts to get bigger just stretch it out out of the way oh shoot and what I like to do is just make a little cut in the center that way crying you have you just set it in here very carefully and just kind of push down on the fry bread just get a Papa it'll start them and then you'll start to see it turn down around the edges and in the center that's the sign of breaking but the brown is around looks pretty much tell you how long to keep it in and it doesn't take very long after that once your crease is very hot and then take it out of there the Greeks and kinda just let the excess oil and then you get the and then you should do it Tiger Walk done with your dough thank you for joining us and I know everybody makes their favorite differently so if you can just send us your recipes in the comment section below thank you
