Navajo Fry Bread Sticks

From the Phoenix Sun newspaper when I was living there in 1991:

Navajo Fry Bread Sticks

  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • Milk or water

Mix all ingredients, adding enough milk or water to moisten.  Form into a dough, then pinch off pieces and roll into lengths.  Bake 30 minutes at 375 degrees.  These are light and soft, good with stew.  Recipe also works for Navajo tortillas or fry bread.  Fry bread may be topped with honey or confectioners’ sugar.  Or layer with pintos, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and green chilies for a Navajo taco.
