oh yeah.

im sure you have never heard of bunny chow....bummer cause it is awesome.

bunny chow is a half loaf of bread(not sliced) and hollowed out. the cavity is filled with chicken/beef/or mutton curry. im talking over flowing. then you take the chunk of bread that you pulled from the center and put it on the top. dinner is served. then you take that chunk of bread and rip a piece off and use it to get a chunk of the curry and then it goes in the eating hole. when that center chunk of bread is gone you start ripping pieces off the bread that is holding the curry and do the same thing. you work your way to the bottom and its gone.
im telling you this dish is AMAZING.

i know a guy that is from there and he just came to visit me for a few days. he started out as a friend and now is sort of a mentor/trainer....whatever.

so he brought legit curry spices from south africa for me. the curry we get here is # let me tell you. the stuff he bought is off the #in hook.
he sent me a picture of when he was buying it. there were mountains of curry everywhere and you order however many ounces/lbs you want.
i have curry boullion cubes and cans of curry/onion mix all from there.
im sure this dish would taste great with ingredients here....

if you guys like curry dishes this is worth making. it is cheap. it is filling and it tastes awesome.

i have the recipe and instructions if anyone wants it.

when he was telling me about it i kind of pictured a runny type of curry that i would need a spoon for so i didnt get the whole no utensil, use the bread but it is perfect.
the way it is cooked it ends up very thick. thicker than a stew.
the way he did the onions was fab too. put those in first and low heat with a slow stir and they melted into nothing and that along with the can of # and the juices from the chicken made the 'stock'.

here is the before pic and i will post and after pic when it is ready to be served.




and this is something off google. thats how it is served

youre welcome.
i am making a lot because i am feeding a few people and i am still making too much. i have almost 3.5 lbs of chickin and about a lb of potatoes and maybe 10 ounces of onions.

also boneless, skinless, DARK meat chicken is what needs to be used. do not trim the fat or anything. the whole untrimmed piece goes in.
the juices from the meat and the fat make the stock so it soaks up the curry spice. by the time it is done that chicken just falls apart so when you rip the bread and get after it you might grab a big piece but when you pull it away to your eating hole a perfect sized piece just pulls right off.

i think it would be cool to serve up for people if you were hosting a party or a dinner...guaranteed your guests have never eaten this or even heard of it.
its a hearty meal. it is cheap and when served up like this really cool.

you know. the presentation of it.

The rest of my little family doesn't like curry, but half a loaf of bread filled with thick stew would be right up their alley. Thanks for the idea!!

right on.
i know the curry filling is the traditional way but like you said. stew it up.
i think that would be great as well. especially in a cold climate. a nice winter meal.
some thick ass beef stew served in a half or quarter loaf. hell yeah.
if you get the thickness correct you will not even need a spoon.
i would serve with a spoon though because some people might be on the spectrum and not know how the hell to eat it with the bread.

Cut the top off a Vienna loaf, bacon eggs, mushroom cheese and onions, lots of chilli sauce
Called it a picnic loaf.
Curry sounds interesting thou

Most good spices can be found at Asian and Indian supermarkets anywhere, just have to look and know what you need. Love a good curry

some progress

onions, oil, the curry cubes, and pepper



flavors blending



about 3.5lb of boneless, skinless, not trimmed chicken thighs



all mixed up with garlic added.

must stir every 5 minutes so it does not burn. i want the onions to melt into nothing. in between the stir the lid is on. helps the flavors to blend and it will create more liquid for the curry spices to soak up.

this is spuds added and then curry added and stirred up. the can of tomato/curry spice went in with the spuds. i mixed it up then put the curry in. mixed that up and now it is slow cook for about 2 hours with me stirring every 5.

Looks delicious!!

Could you use those smaller, hard bread rolls too? A half loaf of bread is a filler by itself. I'd like to try and make some bunny chow on a smaller scale. Please post the recipe


I searched for recipes and noticed a full English breakfast version. Yum yum! There's a photo glitch there that looks like a green herb. Must be a processing error because nobody would ever poncify a good English brekkie. No way.

finished product



using a smaller roll is a great idea as well. finger food. appetizers.
no rules you know. i actually like that idea a lot.

company about to leave. i will post the instructions soon.
