Curried Vegetables with Griddled Biscuit Roti

Buss-Up-Shut is a Caribbean-Indian specialty of curry and the griddled flatbread called roti; the roti here resembles a torn shirt, hence the name. The spicy, coconut-curried vegetables in this version are perfect with the griddled biscuit dough.

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger

  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • 2 teaspoons mild curry powder

  • 1 cup shredded carrots

  • One 15-ounce can chickpeas, drained

  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk

  • 4 cups coarsely chopped Spicy Jerk Vegetables, plus leftover yogurt-scallion sauce

  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro, plus sprigs for garnish

  • Salt

  • Freshly ground pepper

  • All-purpose flour, for dusting

  • 1 tube Pillsbury Grands Homestyle Buttermilk Biscuits

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted


  1. In a large saucepan, combine the oil, ginger, garlic and curry and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until the garlic is softened, about 1 minute. Add the carrots, chickpeas, coconut milk and Spicy Jerk Vegetables and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in the chopped cilantro and season with salt and pepper.
  2. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out each biscuit a scant 1/4 inch thick. Brush the dough with the butter. Heat a large griddle. Add 2 or 3 pieces of the rolled out dough at a time and cook over high heat, turning, until golden, 3 minutes. Fold each griddled roti in half and coarsely chop or tear it.
  3. Spoon the curry into bowls or plates; garnish with cilantro sprigs. Serve with the roti and yogurt-scallion sauce.

Suggested Pairing

Juicy, full-bodied Chenin Blanc, like one from South Africa, is a good match for dishes with a bold kick of curry.
