Gluten Free Indian Fry Bread (Navajo Flatbread)

Gluten Free Indian Fry Bread

Last Updated on

Navajo fry bread was made by the Navajo Indians. Once other tribes began creating their own versions of the bread, it was known as Indian fry bread. Not all recipes for Indian fry bread contain yeast, but this version does. Some use cornmeal, while this one does not. I got the idea when a reader recently emailed me about how my gluten free pizza dough recipe (that you can make in a bread machine or not) turned out to be perfect for gluten free Indian fry bread. She doesn’t use a bread machine, but makes the dough by hand. You can do either. I have adjusted the recipe a bit if you just wish to try 1/3 of the pizza dough recipe. I used less egg white, a little more oil, a little more water, and a higher ratio of cornstarch for crispness. To my amazement, it was absolutely fabulous! I didn’t expect this Indian fry bread (actually a flatbread) to be appealing since it is a thicker dough than I am accustomed to using for what I consider American-Mexican food, but it was. Enjoy!

Last Updated on

I have been wanting to develop a gluten free chicken korma recipe for quite some time, now. It is my favorite Indian dish next to butter chicken. Chicken korma is a spicy Indian dish using turmeric or curry plus other spices. Along with cream, it creates a rich, flavorful dish. You can adjust the heat in this gluten free chicken korma by reducing the cayenne pepper, ginger, and coriander, if necessary. It is of medium heat for an Indian dish, though if not accustomed to Indian food, you may think it is hot. Indian food contains many anti-inflammatory spices, making it a smart choice for an entree.

I already have a few gluten free tortilla recipes: Low-Sodium Gluten Free Tortillas (my first attempt – very similar to Trader Joe’s brand – chewy and a little stiff), Gluten Free Naan Bread (so good, but is thick and calls for instant yeast), and Soft Whole Grain Gluten Free Wraps – Tortillas (when you use Expandex (modified tapioca starch these are the best!). However, I will continue to work on a soft flour tortilla using easily accessible and natural ingredients without the use of yeast. Today, I present you with another soft gluten free tortilla recipe.

Hippocrene Books sent me a review copy of Indian Inspired Gluten-Free Cooking by Alamelu Vairavan and Margaret Pfeiffer along with two gluten free recipes to share with you. Since I am allergic to coconut and tomatoes, I wasn’t able to make this dish myself but thought you would appreciate a coconut and tomato recipe once in awhile. Just looking at the photo had me desiring it immediately. It reminds me of butter chicken, without the butter, which is my favorite Indian dish.

Soft Gluten Free Naan (Indian Flatbread)

Oven-Baked Gluten Free Naan

Last Updated on

Naan is luscious Indian flatbread, similar to a tortilla, but thicker. With one simple alteration, you can roll or pat them out thinner to use as tortillas. The flavor and texture are so good that they should be a sin to eat. By far, this gluten free naan is my most raved about recipe. People liken them to their gluten counterpart. Naan is full of possibilities.
