Well the Christmas season is up on us again and that means ‘nuff nyammings’ and other
As you may already know, everybody who celebrates Christmas loves the ‘traditions’ of
this season as it’s been handed down to us all these years. However, the old time tradition
will eventually pass away with each generation changing its view of the end-of-year
Because each generation make its mark on holiday celebrations according to present
perceptions, our way of thinking toward Christmas, especially, will one a day become a
‘day of interest’ in ways which may surprise most of us, YAH MON!
Saying that to say this, injecting a little different piece of other traditions from other
cultures may just be the start of something beautiful for us Christmas celebrants.
Anyway, I was thinking the other day that, wouldn’t it be nice to add something new to
the Jamaican Christmas table this year?
Well not new, because I am talking about Roti. I have had roti during the Christmas
holidays already, way back in the old days and it was nice to eat it with ham or stew beef.
So, I got a roti recipe from Sabrina, our other staff writer and cook, and I am here to pass
it on this early for you to practice making Jamaican Roti.
Remember, practice this recipe until you get it right. If you can’t get it right, let me know
early before Sabrina goes on vacation.
Here is the roti recipe that has been llllooonnnggg over due. I'm sure your fans will still
4 cups wholewheat or plain flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tbs. baking powder
1 1/2 cups water
flour for dusting
1 Sieve flour,salt and baking powder together in a bowl
2 Gradually add water, working dough to a soft , silky texture. Cover with a slightly
damp cloth and let dough rest for 10-15 mins.
3 Knead the dough again and divide into 8 equal portions
4 Roll the individual portions into round balls (golf ball size)
5 Take one round ball at a time and flatten it into a round disc using your palms
6 Dust your work area and rolling pin with a flour to prevent sticking

spray) and carefully place the roti in the pan or on tawah.

oil. Both sides should be golden brown.
