Sada Roti

Sada Roti is a Trinidad style roti, perfect with Baigan Choka. It is a staple in Trinidad, easy to make and can accompany any meal. The Indian influenced cuisine made its way to Trinidad with indentured servants who worked in the cane fields in the 1800’s.

The recipe is simple, just 4 everyday ingredients. The trick is to make sure that the dough is silky and smooth and that the tawa or griddle is evenly heated. The roti will puff up quite easily, but if it doesn’t, don’t worry, it will still taste delicious.

Pol Roti | Coconut Roti | Sri Lankan Flatbread

These Pol Roti are very popular in Sri Lanka, are eaten at all meals by many, and are particularly loved for breakfast. Pol Roti pairs well with curries, and Sri Lankan sambols, pickles and chutneys. They are even delicious with butter and jam!

A tawa is perfect for cooking them, but you can use any flat pan, griddle, hot plate or BBQ.

Pol Roti can be made thin or thicker. We have made them thick here, but you can choose to roll them out to a thinner roti. Chop the onions or chilli into smaller pieces for thinner roti.

Coconut-y Rice Flatbread | Tandlachi Bhakar | Roti from Goa

A typical Goan Roti

I have such good memories of Goa from many trips over the years. Sitting on a beach, being pampered, eating local food – you can imagine the wonderful heaven I was in.

This is an easy Rice Flat Bread that is common in Goa. They were not pretty roti as the dough is hard to roll out, but they were very very tasty.
