Durban’s famous bunny chow – which is now enjoyed around the world – is apparently a product of the apartheid system when sit-down restaurants were for whites only. Café owners, known by the Hindu name “Banias”, would open hatch windows for black customers, providing them with a meal, crockery and cutlery all in one – their curry served in a hollowed-out quarter loaf of bread, topped with a lid made from the scooped-out bread. They became known as Bania-chow. In the below video KZN filmmaker Richard Henry Productions shows us exactly how it’s done to make sure you serve a delicious bunny chow!
