    Oh my. I think I’ll be cooking that this Sunday – minus the Golden Ray – not available in Michigan. :(

    Amazing site you have here. I stumbled upon it trying to find a recipe for currant rolls. I am now torturing myself going through each of your recipes. :)

    Tinytragedy, you can get Golden Ray on Alternatively, I stock up on Golden Ray when I travel to New York or Toronto. At any rate, I’ve purchased stuff on and its always good – shipping is a little expensive but I pay the premium just to get my Trini things!

    question: I made this meal last night everything was perfect but I bought brown rice and it took forever for it to cook following your directions, What could I have done wrong? Ur instructions is so clear but Y did my brown rice take way over an hour to cook(had to add water to cont. cookin the rice).. :(
    Thank you for your site and time/ all your other recipes I tried came out great

      Thank you Raz for your comment. The only guesses I could make could be the brand of brown rice you bought or or your fire being too low …but let’s focus on the rice. First of all, are you in Trinidad and Tobago or in another country? If you’re in another country the different brands of rice could could be affecting the cooking time of the recipe. Not to confuse you too much, the brown rice we use is the long grain parboiled type that cooks according to the recipe instructions – about 30 to 45 minutes.

    Hi Felix,

    I got married a few months ago, and I stumbled on your site maybe last month. My cooking skills for one have previously been hit or miss, but which didn’t matter to much to me, but now I have to feed someone else so I have to up my game!

    Since I found your site, my cooking skills have sky rocketed and my husband has been wowed! lol. I made your corn soup last weekend, and my husband described it as magnificent, a word he has never used before to describe my cooking :-)

    I advertise your site to all my friends, except my husband ;-) You have become my go-to site for almost all my meal plans, so thank you and keep up the great job!

    In your debt,

      Lyn it doesn’t get any better than this. I encourage you to continue cooking great trini meals for your husband.

      Thank you :)

    Mr. Felix,

    I have heard that pelau can be done vegetarian using mushroom, the dried ones. Do you have any vegetarian way of making pelau. Even one using soya.

      I’ve never done an ital version of pelau, I would have to do it. Thanks :)

    Hi V’s and Felix

    I live here in trinidad and tobago and my mom make it all the time without the meat, you follow all the steps just without adding the meat, instead of browning the meat, when the sugar is ready you put in the rice and brown the rice and season to suit, come out well, for the mushroom you can add it at the side as well.

    Hey felix may be you can try this as well, love the work you are doing

      I believe I will have to do it but using the mushrooms since I don’t really buy Soya Chunks. Thanks Tynicia and you’re welcome :)
