When you think about Caribbean cuisine, what comes to mind? There are several dishes that are globally known from this region and one delicious entree that is well known is roti. Roti can be prepared in different ways with different fillings to suit any taste.
Roti is a flatbread that originated in India. Through global travel, this unleavened flatbread made its way to the Caribbean, where the islanders put their own spin on it, customizing this dish to include the signature flavors of the region. Roti is a beautifully diverse flatbread and can be paired with a number of different fillings. The most traditional Caribbean roti is filled with curry, which is usually made with either chicken, goat, or vegetables. The curry is fragrant, savory, and delicious, with all of the warm spice and flair the Caribbean is known for.
Beyond the traditional curry fillings, you can find a number of other savory options, including beef, shrimp, or ackee and saltfish. Finding something for everyone is no problem given the diversity of the dish. Vegetarians will be delighted with the vegetable combinations available, as well.
