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. Slideshow: Incredible Caribbean Recipes

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
