Curry and Roti

Curry and Roti

The magnum opus of Global South Asia in the Caribbean. 

While roti can be torn up to scoop up saucy dishes by hand, in the Caribbean roti also appears as street food. It envelops any combinations of curries of potatoes, other vegetables, and meat.

Roti takes many forms. Dal puri, grainy and al dente. Silky and luxurious paratha caressed with ghee (clarified butter). Or served as buss-up shut, flaky and fluffy light.

As for the curries? Potatoes, greens, meats, or the fruits of the sea swimming in fragrant sauce. Some with slight sweetness, others more spicy--each household and region adapting it according to their individual tastes.
