Bunny Chow is an Indian dish that originated in Durban, South Africa and has just recently come to India.

What Is It?

Bunny Chow is an Indian – South African dish that originated in Durban, South Africa. It has finally come to India with a few quirky twists to it. It is so popular that the Durban – Bunny Chow got recognition on BBC.

South Africa also has the largest Indian community apart from India itself. Bunny Chow in South Africa was introduced by the immigrants from India who were slaves in South Africa. Convenient to carry as lunch to the field, traditional roti was replaced with a loaf of bread.
