Bunn Chow Recipe
Time to Prepare: 45minutes
Serving Size: 6/7 people
Any kind of curry goes into a bunny chow. It depends on your taste.
4 tablespoons of olive oil
1 onion finely sliced
1 tablespoons garam masala
2 teaspoon ground coriander (seeds)
1 teaspoon hot ground black pepper
5 bay leafs
½ teaspoon of red chili powder
2 teaspoon salt
2 big cardamoms
2 teaspoon ground cumin powder
2 green chilies finely chopped
1/2 teaspoons turmeric
1 teaspoon of paprika
2 medium tomatoes chopped
1 pound boneless chicken cut up in small pieces (10 boneless chicken tender pieces)
2 teaspoons of garlic paste
2 teaspoons of finely chopped ginger
1 large potato cut in 1” cubes
1 bunch of fresh cut up cilantro.
1 Heat the oil and fry onions till they become translucent.
2 Now add the tomatoes, and fry till the tomatoes become a mushy consistency and the oil separates.
3 Add the chicken, potatoes, ginger, garlic and curry leaves and fry for a minute. Add all spices and stir till chicken is all mixed up in the spices.
5 Cover the pot and every 5 minutes stir the chicken till it’s cooked and the potatoes are cooked. Add 1/4 cup of warm water to give the dish a little curry. You don’t want too much liquid because this curry will be placed in the bread but just enough so that you can dip your bread. Cook for about 30 minutes till chicken and potatoes are cooked. If the pieces are smaller the chicken and potatoes cook faster.
If you use a rectangular Loaf of bread:
6 Cut your rectangular loaf of bread across into two or three chunks, depending on how hungry you are.
8 Cut out most of the soft white bread, leaving a thick wall and bottom. Keep the bread you removed.
9 Ladle the curry into the hollows, and then put back on top the bread you removed. You could use this bread to help eat the filling, as “this is ALWAYS eaten with the hands”.
If you use a round sourdough bread:
10 Hollow out the middle of the bread in a circular shape. Keep the bread that you scooped out aside to help eat the chicken.
11 Ladle the curry into the hollows, and then put back on top the bread you removed. You could use this bread to help eat the filling, as “this is ALWAYS eaten with the hands”.
