Bunny Chow
A rather novel way to present food, especially in the outdoors and when camping or hiking. Take 1/3rd loaf of bread and hollow it out. Then put whatever dish you have prepared in the hollowed out portion and garnish with some of the inside you have removed. Use the rest of the inside to mop up the gravy. Use your own imagination for the filling, you'll be surprised what you can put in a hollowed out loaf of bread!

Chicken Curry
  • 1 medium-sized onion, sliced into rings
  • oil
  • 5 ml (1 t) garlic paste
  • 5 ml (1 t) ginger paste
  • 15 ml (1 T) mixed masala
  • 15 ml (1 T) curry powder
  • 3 ripe jam tomatoes, mashed
  • 1 410g can tomato puree
  • 500 g chicken pieces, skinned and deboned
  • curry leaves
  • 5 ml (1 t) fennel powder
  • 5 ml (1 t) garam masala
  • fresh coriander leaves
Fry the onion in a little heated oil until tender. Add the garlic and ginger pastes, and stir in the masala and curry powder. Add the tomatoes and tomato puree.
Simmer for a few minutes until fragrant. Add the chicken pieces and a few curry leaves and simmer slowly until the chicken is done and fragrant. Stir in the fennel powder and garam masala towards the end of the cooking time and sprinkle the curry with fresh coriander leaves.
