Trinidad Sada Roti

Most popular breakfast among Trinidad people is this sada roti, its a plain roti made with white flour and baking powder, coz of its simplicity this roti is made almost everyday for breakfast and serve with Tomato Choka or with eggplant choka..Its a delicious, soft and easy roti prepared with simple ingredients and its one of the most commonly consumed roti in Trinidad and Tobago,where there are shops selling with different curry filling with curried beef, shrimp, chicken or goat also non meat filling with mixed vegetables or potatoes, this roti is so versatile as they can be very well suits for breakfast,lunch or for dinner..I was quite happy trying out this sada roti for our dinner with my tomato choka, both together tastes marvellous..While searching through google, there were many various ingredients are used to make out these sada rotis, but traditionally these rotis are prepared with plain white flour and baking powder with salt and water, while some goes for wheat flour and cornmeal..finally i prepared this soft sada roti by combining wheat flour and plain flour..We enjoyed having this Trinidad's sada roti and we loved it..



3cups All purpose flour
1cup Wheat flour
4tsp Baking powder
Salt
Water
1tsp Oil



Mix together the flours ,salt with baking powder well, knead the flour mix with water as soft and smooth dough..pour the oil in your palms and rub the dough, keep aside for 30minutes closed with wet cloth, divide into 4equal balls and let them sit again for 30minutes...using a rolling pin, roll each balls into a thick disc, heat a tawa in medium flame, put the roti over the hot tawa and cook on both sides until they turns brown..also toast the edges of the roti until they get cooked..

Serve with Tomato Choka!!

I saw a movie chup chup ke and this roti resembles to the roti rajpal yadav has in that movie.

I know this will be soft and tastier than his roti :)

This is a roti I have never eaten before so seems interesting.

Hi, I'm guessing from your procedure that you've never eaten sada roti before from Trinidad. I'm Trinidadian and have grown up eating and making sada roti. You have to make it swell like chapati. I have a sada roti post on my blog with a more detailed procedure if you are interested.
While the one you made I am sure was delicious, a perfectly cooked sada roti is usually filled with stuff or like chapati, pieces are torn off and eaten with a talkari.
http://chillibibi.blogspot.com/2010/05/sada-roti-hot-off-tawah.html which gives more detailed instructions. Sada roti has indian origins. My ancestors came from India 100 yrs ago and their cuisine has adapted and survived. Nice try though. Sada roti making is a skill to be mastered. I had an agee who taught me :)
