    Looking good!!
    I was just in Trinidad and couldn’t get enough of the dishes that i grew up with. The only thing i didn’t get any of was coconut ice cream. Do you by any chance have a recipe for that?

    It’s not written as yet but it’s on my list to do. Stay tuned.

    This is exactly what I have been looking for. A question though – the word ‘masala’ stumped me. Are you referring to garam masala or a specific carribean spice blend? If the latter, how do I go about making it?

    Thanks Aditi for your comment. The masala we use in Trinidad is Amchar masala

    Here’s the recipe for 1/2 cup of masala

    2 tbsp. black peppercorns
    1 tsp. fenugreek seeds (methi)
    1 tbsp. cumin seeds (geera)
    1 tbsp. fennel seeds
    4 tbsp. coriander seeds

    All you do is parch the seeds in a dry pot until they look a little dark. Leave to cool a bit and grind with a mortar and pestle or a coffee grinder if you have one. Then store in an airtight container or bottle in a cool dark place.

    We don’t really make it since we have a few popular brands like Chief and Turban that has been making it for years here in Trinidad. Seems though, like a future post for me to do :-)

    Oh sorry. You don’t put potatoes with your curry goat?

    Of course I do but this recipe didn’t have potatoes as one of the ingredients. You had me there for a moment. Next time I will have to do it with potatoes to show you all.

    The potatoes with yardlong beans was a separate dish

    What is “green seasoning”? It’s not in the ingredient list.
