From the title, you might be thinking I’m sharing how to make food for rabbits, but no, Bunny Chow is a South African street food created by the Durban Indian community. I learned how to make this many years ago after watching a show on one of the food channels.
What is bunny chow? Well, it’s a spicy curry served inside a huge chunk of hollowed out bread – it was designed to be a portable dish, you eat the curry out of the bread ‘dish’ and then you can eat up the bread that has soaked up all the curry juices. It tastes delicious!
It would make an ideal party food for Halloween – I have served this over rice instead of bread, you could make a big pot of it and leave guests to help themselves. I use beef mince in my bunny chow recipe, but you could make this with lamb, chicken, vegetables or beans. There are a lot of spice ingredients in this dish, so have a read through before cooking it to make sure you have them all!
I am hosting a month long Halloween Link Party to celebrate Crafty October and would love for you to share your Halloween ideas – crafts, recipes, costumes, parties…anything goes, as long as it is family friendly! It’s my favourite time of year, (as you may well know!) and I can’t wait to see what you link up!
