Bunny Chow for super lazy people

DSC_0240I really should not even admitting to using some of the ingredients I used, but hey, it is Friday night, I feel like having a bunny chow and I am super lazy, so I used really easy ingredients and improvised mostly from the pantry. I used this recipe as a very rough guideline, using a measurement style that is more up my alley.

This recipe yields 4 very big bunnies, could easily feed 6-8 people instead.


  • 2 Onions, chopped
  • 2 Potatoes, chopped
  • 1 tin tomato mix – Indian style
  • 1 tin tomato and garlic mix <—this I added by accident, you could probably leave it
  • 2 tins mixed vegetables in brine, drained
  • 1 tin red kidney beans, drained and washed
  • 1 tin butter beans, drained
  • Water
  • 1 stick cinnamon
  • 4-5 cardamom pods
  • 1t cumin
  • 1t coriander
  • 2T sugar
  • 2 loaves of bread


  1. DSC_0243Fry the onion until soft. Stir in the spices and the kidney beans and fry for another minute or so.
  2. Add the sugar, the tomato mix and the mixed veggies, and some water, simmer for about an hour and a half, stirring every now and again.
  3. Add the butter beans and simmer for another 30 minutes.
  4. Cut the loaves of bread in half and hollow them out. Dish curry into hollows, top with plain yogurt and serve with sambals.

Some notes: The curry mixture should have some liquid to be absorbed into the bread. Using half a loaf renders a massive meal – you would probably have lots of left overs.
