About this recipe: This dish was invented in Durban, South Africa as a way of feeding the Indian workers in the sugar cane fields. It lends itself to a myriad of fillings and is a fun way to have a dinner party with a difference and a great ice breaker.

Sourcerer Devon, England, UK

Serves: 1 

  • 1/4 loaf bread
  • 200 to 300g cooked Indian curry (e.g. lamb, chicken), warmed

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Scoop the inside of the bread out leaving just the crusty shell. Reserve the inside for later.
  2. Spoon the curry into the bread shell, placing the scooped out bread on the top or the side.
  3. Add condiments such as chutney, chopped up tomato, onion and chilli, chopped banana and/or coconut. Serve on a plate with a fork (some brave folk may prefer to eat it using the bread filling or their fingers - this is quite acceptable!)


You can let your imagination run riot with different fillings e.g. how about a brunch bunny with baked beans and bacon or a 'slunch' bunny with coronation chicken and grated cheese. Just have fun...
