Trinidad Chicken Curry ~ Turkish Lahmacun

Trinidad Chicken Curry:
Colonial rule and immigration have left Trinidad with an incredibly diverse ethnic population. This is reflected in the food, as seen in this recipe: parsley and thyme are European, allspice and habanero chilli are Central American, the caramelised chicken is a distinctively Caribbean way of cooking, and the heavily cumin-scented amchar masala sprinkled in at the end is uniquely West Indian. It makes a delicious and rich curry and is served here with a fruity apple chow and the quintessential Caribbean hot pepper sauce.

Turkish Lahmacun:
Lahmacun, the Turkish equivalent of pizza, is a popular takeaway snack consisting of a yeasted dough rolled thinly and then topped with a mixture of spiced lamb, tomato and red pepper. After baking in a very hot oven, they’re sprinkled with Aleppo pepper, mint and sumac, topped with fresh parsley, sliced tomato and a squeeze of lemon juice and then rolled up and enjoyed immediately.
