fry bread - gluten free or not if you please (biscuit too)

I was reading A Grave Denied by Dana Stabenow on Sunday morning and there was this description of fry bread and coffee that made my mouth water.

Now you must realize, the above picture is how my kitchen normally looks on a Saturday or Sunday morning.  Every burner of the stove is being used, something is in the crockpot, there might be something in my thermal pot (in this case yogurt), and I am trying out something new.  My Beloved just chuckles.  And reaps the rewards.  So in the middle of this, I look up some fry bread recipes and go about putting a gluten free one together so we can have it for breakfast.

fry bread (gluten free or not)

1/4 cup potato flour  (if you would like to make this without gluten free flours, just use 1 cup flour)

1/4 cup millet flour

1/4 cup amaranth

1/4 cup corn 

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

1/4 cup milk powder (I used non-instant)

1/4 teaspoon salt

warm water

In a skillet, heat a half of inch of oil.

Mix all the dry ingredients together.  I actually whisk them to make sure there are no lumps.

Mix in enough warm water to make a stiff dough.  I started with a quarter cup and ended up closer to a half cup.  But do not add too much water because you need to roll out the dough.

Divide the dough into four.  Roll out each piece into a circle.  Put into the hot oil.  

They were done when they were golden and floated to the surface.

We ate them with beans, eggs, and honey.  VERY yummy!  Made our bellies haaapppyyy!!!

I did a little bit of experimenting with this dough.  I took a golf ball size bit and baked it just like a biscuit, 425 degrees Fahrenheit for about ten minutes.  This dough made a fabulous baked biscuit.  More ideas!  I am getting around to figuring out my scone recipe in a gluten free from.  I really need to buy more flours though.  Going to the grocery store has not been on the list recently.

Try the fry bread with honey and a cup of sweet tea or a cup of coffee with cream and brown sugar.  Happy belly!
