PLEASE VISIT MY NEW AND EXCITING BLOG HERE as I in the process of adding more caribbean vegan guides.
Sorry for not posting in a while but I am relocating in a few days.
This is one of my favourite Barbadian Street foods and it is from Trinidad. (smile). This is called doubles because it is made of two savoury sweetish pastry and the inside is curried chickpeas and there are alot of condiments that you can choose from. I got pepper cucumber pickled and spicy green onion seasoning. They are so good that you cannot just eat one. My double looks like Christmas but that is just because I asked for extra pepper.
So when I get to my final destination I will be cooking again.I went out today and I stopped for lunch at the Swizzle Pot In Warrens St. Michael and I decided to get a veggie roti. Roti is just the pastry but we call the entire thing roti here. This roti here has a split pea based skin in flour and water and some margarine and salt. It is soft and flavourful. You can buy the skins just like that and put in whatever. My roti today was chick peas and potato. You can have okra,pumpkin whatever you want inside and it is spicy if you want. I love roti so much. I will miss it. This is about $4.50usd or $9.00 Barbados dollars. This dish is very filling and it is curry based.
