Curry Chicken and potatoes

I had to do this dish just because I had made roti and I don't think I would enjoy the roti without a curry dish. So, I had gone out in search of mock chicken strips and I was lucky enough to find some at Krogers. They have a really good selection of vegetarian products which I like.On my way to the store I was thinking maybe I didn't need to put the chicken in because i know some times in the islands they use just potatoes, but i am happy I followed my mind and added the chicken...turned out really good YUMMY.

Making Roti and the works

Well, I am taking up this blog back as I had put it away for a bit. Right now I am trying to go vegetarian and I am learning to cook a lot of new things. I love Indian food and also Caribbean so, that's where my interest lies now. If I slip up on the vegetarian cooking please feel free to let me know. My family is taking the transition pretty well and seem to be enjoying my experiments.We'll start out with Caribbean cooking; Roti is made famous by alot of island in the Caribbean, but Guyana and Trunidad seem to be the most popular known for this spendid morsel.
Yesterday my task was to make Roti with CURRY POTATOES AND MOCK CHICKEN, which turned out amazing. By no means I'm saying this is the correct way to do as this site is a learning site for you and me. Have a look at the pictures. Take into consideration I don't have a tawa and had to make it in a iron fry pan which I thought came out awesome.
