For a sensational yet simple Indian dish you have just got to try a Durban styled Bunny Chow served with mango pickle and a coriander tomato salad . Bunny Chows date as far back as the 1940s and were created in Durban home to a large Indian Community.
One of the debated stories as to the Bunnys’ origin, was that the food was a means to serve take-aways to excluded people. During the apartheid regime, Indians were not allowed in certain shops and cafes and so the shop owners found a way of serving the people through back windows, etc. This scooped out bread and curry dish was an easy and effective way to serve the workers.
I usually make my curries with a Masala mix with extra ginger. This is easily sourced in Sweden at shops stocking foreign foods. Fresh ginger and garlic are a must. The challenge here in Sweden was to find a nice fat white loaf that wasn’t sliced, or a big round bun similar to the John Cena buns we have in Zambia. ( Yes they actually do have some similarities). ICA Maxi had a smaller white loaf that worked.
Beef, chicken, mutton or vegetarian…in a bunny chow anything goes.
