BM# 68-Cooking Carnival: Day 17
Theme of Week 3: Bread based Street Food
Dish: Vegan Bunny Chow
Today’s bread based street food is this ‘Bunny Chow’ sandwich from South Africa. It is traditionally made with mutton, chicken or other meat. This vegan version is made with chickpeas and potatoes.
As for the name, it has nothing to do bunnies or rabbits. It originated in Durban, South Africa and is said to have been made by the Indian banias who migrated there. It is basically a scooped out bread filled with a spicy and delicious curry. It is quite messy to eat as is but it can also be served over rice.
I loved this sandwich. The curry smells amazing while cooking and it is quite an experience eating it in the scooped out bread. It tastes equally good Indian style served over rice.
