Roti + Ting = Delicious BVI Lunch!December 15, 2011

  

 

The Caribbean offers a wide range of cuisine which is as diverse as the island chain is long with islands all offering their take on meat, fish, stews, soups and so forth.  Several food dishes have “legs” by which we mean you will find them almost everywhere.  One of favorite dishes or meals are rotis.  Brought to the Caribbean by indentured workers from India the roti is a stew wrapped in an Indian flat bread.  It looks a little like a large burrito.  A roti comprises potatoes, garbanzo beans, vegetables and usually chicken or mutton.  Veggie rotis are common.  Rotis can be spicey or not.  They are usually accompanied with chutney.  Compliment with a cold Red Stripe or Ting.
