Pow Wow

12 Mar

What a great weekend! It was filled with fun, sun, and lots of food. 🙂 Yesterday I attended a Pow Wow at Cal State Long Beach and what a wonderful event it was. It was my first time at a pow wow but definitely won’t be my last!!!

{Yum! Traditional Indian Tacos. I know they look like your average taco but it’s the delicious fry bread that makes them so amazing!}

{The dancing and music was beautiful.}

{Feathers galore! I definitely took home a few of these :)}

{Their costumes are phenomenal.}

Indian Fry Bread

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • Oil, for frying

 Directions

Put flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Mix well, add warm water and stir until dough begins to ball up. On a lightly floured surface knead dough. Do not over-work the dough. After working dough, place in a bowl and refrigerate for 1/2 to 1 hour.

Heat oil to 350 degrees in a frying pan or kettle. Lightly flour surface and pat and roll out baseball size pieces of dough. Cut hole in middle with a knife (so the dough will fry flat) to 1/4-inch thickness and place in oil and cook until golden brown and flip over and cook opposite side until same golden brown. Dough is done in about 3 minutes depending on oil temperature and thickness of dough.
