No this recipe is not made from rabbit, it is the name of a dish that my sister-in-law tried when she recently travelled around the southern parts of Africa. There does not seem to be one excepted theory to the origin of the dish. One idea suggests it was an easy way to serve the excluded people out of a restaurant window as no plate was required, you simply just hold the bread loaf as a bowl and eat with your hands.
So last night for dinner I attempted to recreate this dish for my lovely sister-in-law. I used this recipe, opting to make it with beef.
The recipe was a reasonably straight forward curry with loads of spices being fried with onion before adding tomato and beef. This is then simmered for a while and then add the potatoes. I made a few changes as apparently the curry tasted in Africa was sweet so I added some palm sugar and a tin of light coconut milk. I also added carrots and green beans.
It was really delicious, I was surprised at how well it went with the classic white bread. It was a interesting tasting curry that obviously had Indian origins but yet was different.
And yes my guests loved it.
