  1. Hi Lorraine in South Africa ! I grew up in Durban and my favorite time of the year was Dwali, with all the sweetmeat and food. I still make a mean curry and “bunny chow” is the best. If you tell me what ingredients you are unable to get I will send them to you in SOuth Africa no problem no cost my little gift to a fellow cook ! Hope you get my Message.
