    Spicy lamb Bunny Chow originated in South Africa, in Durmas area. And then spread throughout the region from there. Today it is served in many European Restaurants and in many homes of “Afrikaans” as a staple food. And I see why, it is absolutely delicious! 

    Lamb Bunny Chow

    What is Bunny Chow anyway? Well it’s a curry that is traditionally made with Lamb or Mutton or just Vegetables and then it is put inside a loaf of bread for serving.

    History tells the tale of some Indian sugar plantation workers that started to take this food to work daily in a loaf of bread with (no plate) and from there it just took off as one of South Africans famous foods.

    Today this recipe has become a hit in Europe and beyond. I prefer to make this recipe and then place it into “Crusty Bread” as opposed to the traditional “Bunny Bread” which is a plain soft white bread.

    Of course this is my personally preferences, you can choose to prepare it either way! And do not be afraid to eat this one with your hands either, that is how it’s done.
