Want a healthier option to store bought flat breads? I’ve got the perfect solution for you. These sweet potato spelt roti’s are moist, flavor-packed, and have no gums, additives or sugars like the store-bought stuff. You can have these on the side of your soup, with your curry stews, or you can even use it as a veggie wrap. The best part is, it’s so easy and quick to make!
Roti is a traditional food consumed in most Caribbean countries including Jamaica where I grew up and very commonly consumed in the Eastern part of the world (India and Asia).
Some say roti originated from the Egyptian Indus Valley civilization over 5000 years ago, while other sources suggest it was created in East Africa and later introduced to India. However, most of the evidence points to this delightfully simple bread being founded in Southern India. Well, it's no wonder why the West Indies (aka the Caribbean) got a hold of it.
Regardless of its history, its popularity still stretches far and wide. And each culture has its own delicious take on roti.
