Bus Up Shut Roti

To go with tonight’s Curry Goat I’m making ‘bus up shut’, which is apparently a traditional Caribbean bread served with curry goat, and reminded me of the Indian paratha when I saw it being made on TV. I can’t even remember what TV show it was, certainly not the details of the recipe, so I’m going to be following this recipe I found online.

So… “bus up shut”. Soph tells me this is patois for “bust up shirt” as in if your shirt gets ripped up by the washing machine… it would look like this bread. You learn something new every day (well you do if you’re doing life right!).

So the above recipe? Needs like 2-3 times as much flour… eventually we get to this.

Then brush with a mix of oil and butter (mmm… fattening…). Then roll around the clock.

And yeah… it’s buttery and bready. How can you go wrong! #Delicious!

One thought on “Bus Up Shut Roti

  1. I’ve studied all your recipes now. This one, Bus Up Shut Roti, was unusual but as long as it tasted good, that’s all that matters.

    Out of all this week’s recipes the ginger shortbread was my favourite.

    I will look out for goat meat. I’ve never noticed it for sale.

    I haven’t made any rye bread this week because I was at Geordie’s.
