Roti — a generic term for flatbread, derived from the Sanskrit for “bread” — came to Trinidad and Tobago by way of indentured servants from the Indian subcontinent in the 1800s.
Oats are a great meal option for people trying to lose weight. High in nutrients including fibre and carbs, oats can be your go-to food while trying to shed extra kilos. Your oats roti might have uneven edges, but that doesn’t make them any less tasty or nutritious.
Curry was possibly first introduced here by the English who knew it through their colonisation of India and then by the East Indian who came to the island in the 19th century. Curried goat is the most famous or our curry dishes.
Sabzi, or subji, is an Indian term that defines simply a “vegetable dish.” All vegetables can be included in a sabzi and the preparation can take many forms, for instance being presented with our without liquid. The vegetables are seasoned with plenty of spices and, by definition, sabzis don’t contain any animal meat.
In regular terms Roti is called Indian Flat Bread or Tortilla in English. Roti or Indian Flat bread is made of Wheat flour/flour non fermented. Sometimes also known as Chappati. Tortillas are similar to Roti/Chappati but are made from corn flour.
Sada is comparable to naan (minus the leavening) and usually eaten at breakfast with a choka, which is roasted and ground vegetables or fish. Dhal puri is a roti stuffed with ground split peas. It’s large, round and flat, and it’s often wrapped around curry so it can be eaten like a sandwich.
Rotis can become hard if they haven’t been kneaded with enough water, and the dough isn’t soft and pliable to start with. Another reason for them becoming hard is if the tava or skillet wasn’t hot enough to start with.
If your dough or the rolled chapatis lose too much moisture while and after cooking, you might end up with rubbery, or worse, crusty chapatis that are straight out of a nightmare. Therefore, to make soft rotis, you must ensure that they trap enough moisture inside them even after the cooking process is complete.
Why is my poori hard? Lack of moisture in the dough, meaning dry and crumbly dough can yield hard puris. The other reasons are frying them at low temperature for long time & frying them in oil that is not hot enough. Also rolling them too thin can make it hard.
Self raising flour is so called because it has a raising agent already added to the flour. So if you substitute a plain white flour without adding baking powder or baking soda, your dough won’t raise, and when baked you’ll have a hard, heavy bread or cake that will be unappetizing.
You can apply a small amount of fat (ghee/butter) on the roti to remain soft even after a long period of time. Once the chapatis are to the room temperature, wrap it in aluminum foil and this will stay fresh for 12 hours.
Increase the amount of water in the recipe
A moist crumb will feel softer to the mouth. This means increasing the dough hydration of a recipe makes a softer crumb. And this works for lean artisan loaves. Yet, too much water can weigh down the gluten structure to create an overly dense loaf.
Chapattis contain more dietary fiber than rice. Having them can prevent overeating and weight gain. Chapattis are rich in protein, which is inversely linked to belly fat. Apart from making you feel full, protein improves your metabolism and helps in effective calorie burning.
