Roti Chicken Curry Massala

Roti is a Suriname/Hindu dish. If you don’t want to make the bread you can use Naan bread. The roti massala consists of round bread with filling. The bread is made from flour. The filling consists of meat , potatoes and vegetables . The appropriate vegetables for roti massala is green beans, eggplant, endive or dhal (yellow peas).
I got this recipe from one of my favorite cookbooks” Surinaams koken”.

Ingredients:
For the bread:
  • 4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp yeast
  • 1¼ cup water milk mixture (warm 110F)
  • 1 tbsp melted butter
  • olive oil
For the massala:
  • 1 tbsp Garam masala
  • 1 tbsp Curry powder
For the filling:
  • 1 chicken or any other favorite chicken parts
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 large onion (chopped)
  • ½ tbsp sambal
  • 2 tbsp massala
  • 6 potatoes
  • 1 lb green beans
  • 2 tomatoes (chopped)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 knorr bouillon cube
  • salt and pepper
 

Instructions
  1. Add the yeast, water milk mixture and the butter to the flour. Mix well and let it stand for about an hour. After it rises make balls the size of a large egg.
  2. Roll the dough out on a floured surface. Put some oil in a hot pan and “fry” the bread on both sides.
  3. If you can’t get the massala then you have to improvise, I made a mix of my own. 1 tbsp garam marsala and 1 tbsp curry. It’s not the real thing but it’s close enough. If you can get your hands on massala use that.
  4. Season the chicken with pepper, salt, minced garlic, 1 tbsp massala. Put some oil in a pan make sure it’s hot. Roast the chicken for about 10 minutes on all sides. 
  5. Add the minced onion, sambal and 2 cups of water, chopped tomatoes, peeled and halved potatoes and green beans.
  6. Add 1 cube bouillon cube, the bay leaves and 1 tbsp massala . Stew till the potatoes are done (about 20 min). If it starts to dry out add some water. There should be enough water to dip the bread. If you like the “sauce ” thick add some diluted cornstarch.
