Is that the only place you've had that?  Have you ever had anything similar anywhere else?

Well, you have to start somewhere. 

Try some of the recipes we've posted and tell me what you think.

And for those of you who are waiting for new recipes, don't get discouraged.  I will post more as promised.  We are in the middle of adding some new features to the site and that is taking all my time at the moment.  We have a lot of exciting things coming, so hang in there!

Greetings!

I'm searching for a recipe for rotis with a filling that includes meat. I'm stymied...a google search came up with nothing, but at least it led me to your website! I'm very surprised that there aren't dozens of recipes for a dish as common in the Caribbean as a roti: It's almost like visiting Mexican recipe sites and being unable to find a recipe for a burrito, eh?

Perhaps someone out there has a basic recipe for rotis that can be made with either chicken or beef, depending upon your mood?

Glad I found you. I'm sure I'll be a frequent visitor.

Heres One for Chicken Roti  And here is also a link to many good recipes http://www.rotishops.com/recipes.html

Chicken Roti

Ingredients

4 c flour
2 tb baking powder
1 pn salt
2 ts oil
1 1/2 c ; water, lukewarm
2 1/2 lb chicken; skinned, boned &
-cut into
1 ts garlic; chopped
1 scallion; finely chopped
1/2 ts scotch bonnet pepper; finely
- chopped
1 ts salt
3 tb curry powder
1 tb jira; ground
1/2 tb pepper, black
2 tb oil; for each poori
1 scallions; garnish
1 scotch bonnet pepper; finely
- chopped (garnish)
1/2 c ; water, or more

Instructions

To prepare the pooris, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a
mixing bowl. Pour the oil into the water, then add this mixture to
the flour mixture to form a dough. Mix well. Knead for about 5
minutes until dough is very smooth. Divide into 6 balls of dough.
Set aside for about 2 hours, covered with a damp cloth. Using a
rolling pin, roll each ball into a thin flattened circle, a poori,
about 9 inches in diameter. Set aside, covered.

To prepare the filling, combine the chicken and all the other
ingredi- ents except the oil and the garnish. Mix well and marinate
for 2 hours or longer. When done marinating, add 2 tablespoons oil to
a saucepan and heat to medium. Add the chicken mixture and cook,
stirring con- stantly for about 5 minutes. Add the water then cook on
low for about 5 minutes, or until chicken is tender. Keep warm.

Add 2 tablespoons of oil to a skillet or grill. Place the rolled
pooris on the skillet. Fry each side for about 2 minutes, or until
lightly browned. Brush each side with margarine or oil. Wrap in clean
towel to keep warm until ready to serve.

When ready to serve, fold about 2 tablespoons of chicken mixture into
each round and serve. Garnish with scallions and Scotch Bonnet
pepper.

Hello,

This is my first time using the site. Can someone help me find a recipe for Salt Fish and Okra and Spinach, the way it is cooked on St. Thomas for Sunday morning breakfast.

I am planning to cook Salt Fish w/butter sauce - Okra and Spinach - boiled egg with butter bread.

Thanks,

Audra

Well, I searched high and low and I found some of the recipes you were asking for.  I've added them to the Recipes Section and provided a link below.

Try them out and tell me what you think.

(Reminder: On CaribbeanChoice.com, any text in blue is typically a link that you can click on.)

Thanks, Deelady! Your recipe for Chicken Roti sure got me started. I hope Scott will add that recipe to the recipe page.

Now...does anyone have a recipe for roti filling using either beef or pork? I oh-so-fondy remember the pork rotis I used to grab at the local roti shack when I was teaching on Grenada...

Thanks, all!

Hello!

I am looking desperately for a recipe of a Jamaican salad that is served warm and is made with cabbage, greens, beans, carrots (assorted chopped veggies) and seemes to be stewed. It is the spices and seasoning I am clueless about. It seems to have a savory flavor as if cooked in meat broth?? On the menu of the restaurant it is simply just refered to as "salad".

Can anyone help??



Dear Deelady,
Is it possible that the warm, "stewed" taste of this salad comes from being dressed with a boiled vinegar dressing? If so, I may be able to help. Let me know...
