Oofda Tacos aka as Indian Fried Bread Tacos are the perfect street fair food! Top the fried bread off with whatever you’re little taco lover inside you desires.
Ever since making that Barbacao Beef this weekend, I’ve had to think of clever ways to get rid of the left overs. That’s the fun part, and where recipes will start to develop in my head. Some are Weight Watcher friendly, and others are not so much Weight Watcher friendly. Like these Indian Tacos.
For my Oofda tacos, I topped them with leftover Barbacao beef, corn salsa, shredded cheese, and sour cream. Delicious! Use whatever taco toppings you like.
Up North, we call them Oofda Tacos. My only guess for that is because there’s a lot of Norwegians up here, and people just love to get them at the Street Fair. These tacos are huge and about the size of your head. After you get done eating them, the only thing you can say is Oofda! Usually, they’re topped with your regular seasoned beef and taco toppings such as shredded lettuce, tomatoes, olives, and hot sauce. I’ll get them at the Street Fair with a glass of freshly squeezed lemonade followed by cheese curds. That doesn’t sound to healthy does it? It’s only once a year, so it’s worth it. 🙂Print
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup milk
- 4 cups oil for frying, or as needed
- In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir in milk, and mix until the dough comes together. Add more flour if necessary to be able to handle the dough. On a floured surface, knead the dough until smooth, at least 5 minutes. Let the dough rest for 5 minutes.
- Heat oil in a large, deep heavy skillet to 365 degrees F (180 degrees C). Oil should be about 1 1/2 inches deep. Break off 3/4 cup sized pieces of dough, and shape into round discs 1/4 inch in thickness, making a thinner depressed area in the center. Fry breads in the hot oil until golden on both sides, turning only once. Drain on paper towels.
- Top fry bread with beans, ground beef, lettuce and cheese. Spoon picante sauce over. You can also top with other of your favorite taco toppings, such as onion, sour cream or guacamole.
