Chicken Roti recipe












Trans-fat Free, Good source of fiber, Sugar-Free


4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 pinch salt
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 ½ cups water
2 ½ pounds chicken
skinned, boned and cut into 1 1/2 inch cubes
1 teaspoon garlic
1 scallions, spring or green onions
finely chopped
½ teaspoon scotch bonnet chile peppers
finely chopped
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons curry powder
1 tablespoon jira
½ tablespoon black pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
for each poori
scallions, spring or green onions
to garnish
scotch bonnet chile peppers
finely chopped, to garnish
½ cup water
or more


To prepare the poori:

Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl. Pour the oil into the water, then add this mixture to the flour mixture to form a dough. Mix well.

Knead for about 5 minutes until dough is very smooth. Divide into 6 balls of dough. Set aside for about 2 hours, covered with a damp cloth.

Using a rolling pin, roll each ball into a thin flattened circle, a poori, about 9 inches in diameter. Set aside, covered.

To prepare the filling:

Combine the chicken and all the other ingredi-ents except the oil and the garnish. Mix well and marinate for 2 hours or longer.

When done marinating, add 2 tablespoons oil to a saucepan and heat to medium. Add the chicken mixture and cook, stirring con- stantly for about 5 minutes.

Add the water then cook on low for about 5 minutes, or until chicken is tender. Keep warm. Add 2 tablespoons of oil to a skillet or grill. Place the rolled pooris on the skillet.

Fry each side for about 2 minutes, or until lightly browned. Brush each side with margarine or oil. Wrap in clean towel to keep warm until ready to serve.

When ready to serve, fold about 2 tablespoons of chicken mixture into each round and serve. Garnish with scallions and Scotch Bonnet pepper.
