It’s one of those “family secrets” that’s really not that much of a secret. And that secret is roti with a Guyanese flare. If you’ve ever eaten Indian food, you’ve probably had naan or chapati — which is basically flat bread. Well, ever since I can remember, my mom has made the most wonderfully fluffy (with a slight crip) roti. After years of practice, I think I can duplicate it.
Anyway, what brought all this roti talk up was an article I was reading in my local paper. It was about a couple of brothers who, it seems, make the best naan in the Bay Area. I’m not a huge naan fan, but I am a big roti fan, so I wanted to know if there was anyone who spilled the secrets on making Guyanese roti.
Thanks to YouTube, behold!
