Being an ex-Durbanite, I feel honoured to share a simple, culinary delight from my hometown – the famous Bunny Chow. This hollowed-out half-loaf of bread is filled with any available curry, whether it's beef, lamb, chicken or vegetable. The piece of bread, hollowed out of the loaf, should be placed on top of the curry. Some like to add sambals such as chutney to their 'Bunnies' but it's unnecessary.
It has become quite novel for miniature versions of this informal 'hands on' meal to be passed around at some of the most formal dinner parties! This 'finger food' option can be easily achieved by using 'two-bite' small round cocktail rolls. Cut off their tops/lids about a quarter of the way down, scoop out some bread, fill them with curried mince and top them with the lids you initially cut off.
