    KristinV's Note:

    This is an African Fast Food Dish consisting of a hollowed out loaf of bread filled with curry. It is easy enough to skip the hollowed out bread bit and just serve this with rice but give it a go the traditional way just once. Like most 'stew-like' recipes this one tastes better the next day!

      This is a 5 star idea, we loved our "bowls"! I can't remember the last time I bought one of those fluffy white unsliced loaves, it felt like a quite a treat. I think due to some of my choices the curry turned out drier than I would have liked - it would have been nice to have more of a gravy to sop up with the bread & crust (I did try adding some extra water). For that reason, next time I would go with the tinned tomatoes instead of fresh, and would use a waxy potato, since of course russets (which I used) break down so much. I used all the ingredients listed except for curry leaves, which I didn't have. I think any sort of curry would be fabulous served this way, and maybe in mini sourdough loaves or giant whole grain rolls to mix it up. Thanks for the intro KristinV! A very nice curry and a great way to enjoy it. I've quite honestly never seen my daughter enjoy a curry this much. Made for ZWT7.

      We liked this recipe for dinner last night. Followed the instructions as posted and I actually did have fresh curry leaves to use. Based on another review, I used yukon gold potatoes instead of russet. I found they had to cook much longer than the recipe specified in order to be soft. I did not have durban masala so I used a combination of punjabi masala and garam masala. We served over rice instead of hollowed out bread. Thanks for posting.
