Dhal Puri is a type of Indian-inspired flatbread that is made in the Caribbean. The flatbread is stuffed with a seasoned filling of ground split peas. A Dhal Puri can be eaten as is or with a sour (a type of chutney). In the Caribbean, it is often eaten with some type of meat or poultry curry.
Wrap roti , often referred to as a roti , is a popular food in the Caribbean, and consists of a curry stew folded tightly within a dhalpuri or paratha roti . The stew generally contains potatoes and a meat such as chicken, duck, goat, beef, conch or shrimp. This wrap form of roti originated in Southern Trinidad .
A pea should crumble easily between two fingers when pressed, without being pasty. Drain well in a colander and allow to dry out a bit. Using a food processor, grind small batches of the drained split peas until they resemble soft fluffy cake crumbs. You may occasionally need to scape down the sides of the processor.
To fold the parantha, divide the dough into balls and roll them out so that the dough is about four inches around. Put a small amount of oil on the rolled out portion of dough and spread your filling around evenly-then roll out the remaining dough ball and place it on top.
Paratha, also know as “ buss up shot ” is one of the various types of roti ubiquitous in Trinidad. It is called buss up shot because of its texture, appearance and similarity to a torn (burst) t-shirt. Leave it up to a Trini to come up with a name like that.
Doubles is a common street food originating from Trinidad and Tobago. Doubles are made with two baras (flat fried dough) and filled with curry channa (curried chickpeas) and various chutneys.
