If you love bread dip with chowder, stews, or thick curry, this is the right recipe for you… Bread Bowl.
Bread Bowl is a round loaf of bread with a thick and crispy crust like French Loaf (Baguette), which has had the middle cut out to create an edible bowl. Add in your favorite, chicken curry with potatoes as shown in the photo, for instance, serve as a main meal or as a snack. Dip the cut-out bread with the curry and eat, after that, you can eat the bread bowl to finish off the whole dish. Less bowl to clean up and wash, ghee….. less work, less wastewater, less dish wash to use and more environmental friendly 🙂
As some of you might have known, I don’t have an oven to bake. I baked this bread bowl at my mom’s house and off course with some helping hands from her. After all the baking and a great time learning tips from her, I went home with a box of bread bowls, ready to serve my family with curry from my mom’s recipe too.
Get the recipe to bake some bread bowls for your family and friends. Enjoy!!!!
