Mild Roti

When my husband and I started living together I didn’t really know how to cook so I bought the diy package, you know, the ones that contain only powdered stuff and all you have to do is add some water.

When I got pregnant I really wanted to live healthier, I bought everything biological and without E-numbers. Roti was one of my favorite dishes from the Surinam store nearby, so one day I went looking for the recipe online. All I could find was spicy stuff, which I personally dislike but more importantly my daughters hate even more.

I began to make my own recipes based on the online ones, I mixed them, added things or kept them out. which led me to a whole lot of recipes I would love to share with (new) mothers around the world.

This Roti recipe is for +/- 4 people and maybe even more delicious the next day for lunch :)


Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 onion
  • olive oil
  • 300 gr potatoes
  • 350 gr string beans/green beans
  • 1 can of tomato purée of 70 grams
  • 500 ml vegetable broth (1 stock cube with 500 ml water)
  • 200 gr chicken thigh
  • 8 roti wraps
  • 4 tbsp cumin powder
  • 2 tbsp paprika poeder
  • 4 tbsp curry powder
  • Greek yoghurt


Preparation:

  1. Turn on the tv for your child(ren)
  2. Poor yourself some wine *autocorrect* water.
  3. Boil the eggs hard.
  4. Chop the onion and garlic, peel and dice the potatoes. And chop the green beans in half.


Directions:

  1. Heat the oil in a pan and add the onion and 1 minute later the garlic, you don’t want burnt garlic that is disgusting.
  2. Add the tomato purée and the powdered herbs, let the flavors simmer for a few minutes.
  3. Add the potatoes and beans and stir it.
  4. Add the broth and let it simmer on a low heat for 15 minutes.
  5. In an other pan you can bake the chicken with some salt, you can skip this step and add some more beans for example so you’ll have a vegetarian roti which is also delicious.
  6. After the 15 minutes you’ll add the chicken and eggs and let it simmer for 10 more minutes. Check a few times if there’s enough water. Above all taste it! So you’ll know what to add more.
  7. In the meantime you can heat the wraps in the pan you just baked the chicken in and already washed. Or not, grab a new pan yolo.

* You could also leave the eggs out so you’ll have an vegan Roti! Add some more veggies, for example some chopped tomatoes or carrots.
* Especially when the children are smaller I cook with almost no salt, we (the adults) put some salt or even sambal on it afterwords.
*Here at my home we like to put some Greek yoghurt on the wraps first before putting the roti on top of it.

Roll ‘m up and bon apetit
