We hope you enjoyed spending the Easter holiday with your families at home, making the best of this time in isolation. Although we couldn’t be with our families over the Easter weekend because of the lockdown, we celebrated it at the lodge as Family-of-Workers, giving us a welcome distraction from work. Our chef prepared a wonderful Bunny Chow, served in a Potjie. Great taste!
Bunny Chow is a South African dish which originated in the Indian community in Durban. Basically it’s hollowed bread with a filling, usually a curry of some kind. Our chef prepared bread in a traditional Potjie and filled it with a chicken curry with pineapple and tomato/onion salsa.
For those of you not familiar with a Potjie. A Potjie it’s an Iron cooking pot used to prepare potjiekos. Potjiekos (pronounced as pojkiekos) is a traditional South African dish which originated with the Voortrekkers. These pioneers carried iron pots with them on their journeys. Along the way they collected ingredients to prepare meals in the potjie. The ingredients used in Poijkiekos are built up in layers from hard to soft and are slowly cooked on the fire.
