Dhal, meaning peas or legumes, and Puri, a type of fried dough flatbread, come together in this Indo Caribbean delight known as Dhal Puri. This dish is another type of flatbread most commonly associated with Trinidad Roti. However, unlike other flatbread, this one is filled with ground seasoned Dhal or yellow split peas that create a crumbly mixture within the dough layers. In Trinidad, we take our favorite curried meats and vegetables, and place them onto the center of a Dhal Puri and then carefully wrap it all up into a food bundle of joy. Then, with each bite, you break up the layers of the flatbread roti to release the Dhal puri crumble, which then absorbs the gravy and food juices, only adding to the depth of flavor and texture.
