Bunny Chow is curry served in a hollowed out loaf of white bread dating back to the 1940s. It is suggested to have come from the migrant Indian labourers who needed a way to carry their lunches to the sugar cane fields of Port Natal. Bunny chow is not made from Rabbit as the name would suggest, but typically lamb or chicken. It’s a fairly quick and easy dish but extremely tasty.Ingredients400g diced lamb1 white onion diced1 thumb sized piece of ginger diced4 cloves garlic diced200g potatoes cut into small cubes300ml water + more if required4 tablespoons Uncle Beef Braai SeasoningCoriander leaves sliced and stems set asideJuice of half a lime.Crusty bread loaf
