Full Recipe:

For the Frybread:
1 cup almond flour
2 tablespoons coconut flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum (optional, for added texture)
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons ghee or coconut oil, melted
Water (as needed to adjust the consistency)
For Frying:
Ghee or coconut oil for frying
Prepare Dry Ingredients:
In a mixing bowl, combine almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, xanthan gum (if using), and salt. Mix well to ensure even distribution of ingredients.
Add Wet Ingredients:
Add the eggs and melted ghee (or coconut oil) to the dry ingredients. Mix until you have a thick dough. If the dough is too dry, you can add a little water, one tablespoon at a time, until the dough comes together.
Form Dough Balls:
Divide the dough into golf ball-sized portions and roll each portion into a ball.
Flatten Dough Balls:
Place a dough ball between two sheets of parchment paper and use a rolling pin to flatten it into a thin, round disc. Aim for a thickness of approximately 1/8 to 1/4 inch.
Heat Oil:
In a skillet or frying pan, heat ghee or coconut oil over medium-high heat.
Fry the Dough:
Carefully place the flattened dough into the hot oil and fry until golden brown on both sides. This typically takes 2-3 minutes per side. Use a spatula to flip the frybread.
Drain and Repeat:
Once the frybread is golden brown and crispy, remove it from the oil and place it on a paper towel to drain any excess oil. Repeat the process with the remaining dough balls.
Serve Warm:
Serve the Keto Indian Frybread warm as a side dish or a base for your favorite keto-friendly toppings.
