Recipe

Rotis and chapatis are flat East Indian breads made from flour and water. Rotis or chapatis can be bought readymade. If you can’t find rotis for this recipe, wrap ½ cup (125 mL) filling in 2 chapatis or half a 10-inch (25 cm) tortilla. Two-thirds of a cup (150 mL) of rice could also replace a roti shell.

In the Caribbean, rotis are served folded around a filling of curried meat, chicken or beans and potatoes.

Yield: Makes 3 cups (750 mL) (enough for 6 rotis)

Ingredients

For the Curried Chickpeas and Potato Filling:

  • ¼ cup (50 mL) water
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) olive or vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped or crushed
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) curry powder (mild or hot)
  • Dash of hot pepper sauce or chili powder
  • 2 cups (500 mL) diced cooked potatoes
  • 19-oz (540 mL) can chickpeas, including juice

For the Cucumbers in Yogurt:

  • 1 medium cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup (50 mL) fat-free plain yogurt
  • Mint or paprika to taste
  • Dash of vinegar, lemon juice or lime juice
  • ½ tsp) (2 mL) garlic powder or 1 garlic clove, finely chopped

Directions

To Make the Filling:

1. Heat the water and oil in a heavy pot and add the onions, garlic, curry powder and hot pepper sauce. Cook at low heat until the onions are soft.

2. Add the cooked potatoes and canned chickpeas with juice and cook for 30 minutes. Cool and put in the fridge overnight.

To Make the Roti:

The next day, reheat the filling and place ½ cup (125 mL) in the middle of each roti. Fold one side over the mixture, then the other. Fold ends toward the center to make a neat package. Turn it over on the plate so the folds are underneath. Microwave on high for 3 to 4 minutes, or heat in a hot oven for 30 minutes. Serve with Cucumbers in Yogurt.

To Make the Cucumbers in Yogurt:

1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl.
