Trini Curry with Buss Up Shut & Mango Chow

This month we’ve got a delicious curry from Trinidad that’s traditionally cooked with duck (though chicken works too) and is served as part of a feast at Trini beach 'limes' (beach parties!). The curry is flavoured with green seasoning (a tangy sauce of herbs and lime juice), Trini curry powder and plenty of very darkly roasted ground cumin (geera) - a flavour that’s unique to Trinidadian cooking. It’s served here with buss up shut, a flaky layered flatbread that has its origins in the roti breads brought over to the Caribbean in the 1800’s by indentured workers from India. After cooking they’re bashed up (buss up) creating the perfect vessel for scooping up the curry!
