Grenadian Run Down

5/5 from 1 Customers

One-pot run down is the national dish of Grenada. Cooked at parties and on the street, the name comes from the oil in the coconut milk which splits and sinks to the bottom of the pot. It’s true comfort food - a simple stew of chicken, potatoes, sweet potatoes and bananas in spiced coconut milk.

Book: Curry Legend Club Recipes (p10)

Real Comfort Food came out like a main course soup and as delicious as any. 2nd helpings followed but there is still plenty left for tonight and even tomorrow. What a wonderful "Free Sample" it was. Thank you.

We're really pleased to hear how much you enjoyed this free sample - true comfort food from the Spice Isle, Grenada!
