The perfect combo for a good Trini ‘lime’!

Geera pork is a popular Trinidadian curry, often served in bars to be eaten with drinks. The curry features bite-sized pieces of pork and plenty of very darkly roasted ground cumin (geera) - a seasoning that’s unique to Trinidadian cooking. A long slow simmer really allows the flavours to penetrate the meat, producing perfectly tender spiced pork.

It’s served here with buss up shut, a flakey 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!

Glad you enjoyed it!


We loved this recipe! Everyone in Trinidad loves roti.. The paratha recipe is very good and the pork is a winner.. mango curry was perfection and spinach too. Mother in Law Salad was a great addition..

So glad you enjoyed it, Uma! The Buss Up Shut is a Spicery favourite too!


We didn't have the Buss up Shut but my wife added Yoghourt to her serving as she found it a little too hot and too much lime. It is a lovely dish and the Mother-in-Law bit must be the Carrot and Stick of the Salad. Mine is much gentler!! Thanks as usual.

The dish looks delicious! Thanks for sharing and happy spicing!


Absolutely delicious, love trying new things from around the world that I wouldn't have heard of otherwise. Instructions were super clear and easy to follow, can't believe my first attempt at bread turned out so well! Thank you <3

Woah we wish we could try some of this, the Buss Up Shut is making us super hungry- well done!


First curry in the garden of 2020 (whilst in social isolation) was really lovely and super easy to make, will definitely be having this one again!
