Listings in Roti Shops

Roti is a generic Indian term for flat breads. In the Caribbean the word Roti has evolved to mean a wrap or a sandwich, which is a Roti (Roti Shell, Roti Skin) in which is placed curried meat or vegetables. There are different types of roti shells, the most popular being Dhalpuri, a soft flatbread with a thin layer of ground split peas inlaid in the skin. Another is Paratha,  or Buss up Shut, or Buss up Shirt and sometimes called 'plain' roti as it looks plain; however a well made paratha involves more labour in making. In Trinidad the Dhalpuri is preferrred as the skin, and in Jamaica the Paratha is preferred. Visitors to the Caribbean have developed a taste for Roti (the sandwich), and there are numerous Roti Shops in North America and the UK. Given the lively taste and the well-known health benefits of curry, you should plan on visiting a Roti Shop near you. A good hot Roti is a real pick-me-up in winter months.
