I have been in the southwest several times, but have yet to try fry bread.   Is fry bread similar to the "dough-boys" of my native Rhode Island?
Also, why is it referred to as fry bread, rather than fried bread.  In other words, we say fried chicken, and not fry chicken.  Is it a unique frying process used for fry bread?   Maybe something like "oven fried", hence the distinctive fry bread name, rather than fried bread?
Much thanks.
Glenn

Heres some Fry Bread!

Basically it's a round of dough that when dropped into hot oil puffs up. Similiar to funnel cake or donuts or beignets . Can be used to make tacos or desserts with sugar and chocolate or various toppings or just plain with powdered sugar.

My .02... You might also try any area powwows and such where there are usually NA food vendors selling fry bread, tacos, etc..

As an aside... I had a NA friend in New Mexico that would send me a great bread that could be bought there from roadside vendors. They were beautiful round loaves, with what I think was a strong baking soda tang. Made excellent toast.

Unfortunately this good friend passed away 2 years ago, and a trip to New Mexico (which I love) is not the same.

 
Sounds like Acoma bread cooked in the horno style ovens at their Pueblo.

Wow!  That looks delicious!  
 
As a curiosity, any ideas why it is called fry bread rather than fried bread?   I love trivia stuff, and have no clue on this one.  The link with its history didn't really mention the reason for the odd naming.   
Anybody?
 
Thanks!

No clue. I never thought about it. However, I do like the term Fry Bread instead of Fried Bread. It just sounds more unique.

Maybe in the Navajo Language there's no word for Fried but there is for FRY??????
I'll ask next time I go to the Fry Bread House.
EDIT: Went today and asked them. They said, "Don't know. We just always call it Fry Bread for long time."
So there you have it!

Here is an interesting website on fry bread (also called bannock) with links to some recipes:

FRY BREAD HOUSE IN PHOENIX HAS A SECOND LOCATION IN MESA!!!
I went to the Original Fry Bread House on 7th AV for lunch today. There was a hand written sign by the the front door announcing that they had a second location in MESA!
It's in a strip center on the NorthEast corner of Dobson & Baseline, just off the Rt 60 Superstitution Freeway! That's much closer to my home so I'll get there more often, (Which can be good or bad)
Both places offer the same menu. I just hope the second location has the same touch at kneading the dough that
Cecelia Miller, the person who started it all, has!
BTW, today I had the "Red Taco" - Fry Bread with Spicy, Stringy, Red Chili Beef, shredded cheese and chopped Lettuce. Delicious!
You can get a variety of FryBread Taco's with fillings like refried pinto beans, chili beef, ground beef, chorizo,green chilies, onions lettuce etc in various combos.
They also make delicious stews including - Red Chile, "Hatch" green chile, vegetable beef, as well as pozole and menudo. Of course they come with a fry bread!
They also make Burros using from scratch, hand stretched flour Tortillas with all the ingredients listed above.
FRY BREAD HOUSE SWEETS:
Fry Bread with Secret Mexican Chocolate & Butter- An Award Winner,
Cinnamon & Sugar, Golden Honey, Powdered Sugar, Butter & Powdered Sugar, and various combinations of all these! Don't Skip Dessert!!
They don't have a web site but if you google Fry Bread House, Phoenix, you'll get plenty of info.
