3 things to do with... roti

Add spice to your life with our Bo-Kaap inspiration!

I just love a proper hot roti, straight from the tandoor, all fluffy and stretchy with crunchy bits. In my next life there will be a furnace in my kitchen with a roti genie hovering nearby to satisfy my cravings on a whim.

Until then the frozen supermarket variety is a kitchen stand-by. They are a deliciously convenient vehicle for packed lunches, and you don’t have to stick to curry for the filling either. I’ve wrapped anything from shredded leftover 7-hour lamb roast, lettuce and tzatziki to Mexican mince in mine.

If you have time and are in the mood for a proper curry, then this Malaysian Beef Rendang is a guaranteed winner. And while you are at it, you might as well make your own roti’s from scratch with this tried-and-tested hot-water roti recipe from a Bo-Kaap kitchen.

Here are 3 quick roti fixes.

1. Cheesy roti sandwich
Perfect lunchbox and hangover fodder. Add a smear of onion marmalade or some pickles.

2. Spicy chicken and avo roti

All you need is a jar of curry-paste, chicken breasts and 10 minutes. Perfect meal for singles.

3. Mince and butternut roti
Quick mince and butternut curry. Add raw baby spinach, coriander and feta to the wrap for a summery feel.
