Saturday Sandwich 81: Trini Double

This sandwich from Trinidad & Tobago consists of two fried bread rounds sandwiching a potato and chickpea curry. Sounds lovely!

Make up a bread dough with the addition of some curry powder to spice things up! Knead for 5 minutes and leave it to expand a bit.

Diced potato, chickpeas, onion and curry spices along with garlic and chilli simmered in water until it has a thick sauce and the potato is soft.

Form the dough into 4 rounds (ours are more like triangles for some reason) and deep fry until golden brown.

Sandwich together the fried dough and curry adding a spoonful of mango chutney to sweeten the deal.

We loved this sandwich, it smelled great while it was cooking so we'd been really looking forward to trying it. The chickpea curry was really spicy due to the chilli but the mango chutney made it easier to eat by subduing the flavours a bit. The fried dough was light and tasty. We were surprised how puffed up they got in the deep fat fryer.  It's a messy eat with the curry falling back out onto your plate but with a fork handy you can clean up and finish it. It was really delicious, chickpeas and potatoes are a great curry combination.
