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.

Review for Turkish Lahmacun (we haven't made the Trinidad Chicken Curry yet) Absolutely delicious! Easy and quick to make (not counting the resting periods for the dough). The hint of sweetness in the dough is a wonderful contrast with the sumac spices on top of the meat filling.

We're so happy to hear how much you enjoyed the Turkish Lahmacun, Tony, and hope you love the Trinidad Chicken Curry just as much when you get round to making it! Happy spicing!
