What we would call a potato roti or what you would get at a trini roti shop is really the normal dhal puri roti with a curry potato filling. I know it sounds a bit confusing but that’s how it is in Trinidad and Tobago.


Sawine or sewine is hard to describe: it’s not a drink yet we slurp it down in cups, but then it’s not even porridge because it has vermicelli in it. Confusing as it may seem, this is one sweet delicacy I look forward to every Eid.
