    OMG! I made this with a little less pepper and it was absolutely amazing. I had this on my visit to Trinidad and we liked it and ever since wondered how to make it. I made it for the first and my family really enjoyed it. Thank you for taking the time to post this recipe.

    i love this pepper roti…but I will go for the softer chilli…I’m a tad scared of all those flames! But it looks delicious

    Well there is always a different way for any recipe.. I would make my mxture and place the pepper mixture in between my two balls (dosti Roti) roll out and then cook on the stove… boy this is real good…
    when you roast the pepper it even hotter…

    Felix.. you need to have your own TV show…
    great job…. thanks for sharing…

    This was absolutely SCRUMPTIOUS! I’m Trini and live in Trinidad all my life but believe it or not, have never had this dish yet I followed the exact recipe and it was perfect! Can’t wait to make it again!

    I have to say: I LOVE your website. It’s so informative and your pictures are really helpful. I’m trini and I love trying foods from different cultures. Spending half my life in NY I’ve become less acquainted with my own culture’s food making it all that more exotic to me. I love your website because it not only reconnects me to my old time favorites but introduces me to other things that are new to me in our own “multicultural” trini cuisine. Not to mention – it serves as that oh so wise “aunt” or “grandma” showing you how it’s really done. So thank you for putting up an amazing website and best wishes to you always! :)

    When I make pepper roti I grate the carrot only. I don’t blend it. Just a heads up.

    I had the same problem with the potatoes…was I supposed to cook the potatoes first the add the cheese and spread???? I’m so upset with my roti :(

      Nope, if you grated the potato as instructed on that particular side of the grater you’re not supposed to have any problems. Other than that it’s just a matter of cooking the roti properly on a low fire.

    Do you cook the potatoes or the filling any before placing between the bread or does the heat adequately cook the filling while cooking the bread? I was thinking with potatoes, maybe you should pre -cook them a little bit. I can’t wait to try this recipe. It looks and sounds so good. As far as the heat of the peppers, the more the better!

    • Felix

      No, you don’t cook the potatoes. Because the potato is grated, it does not require pre-cooking.
