The Trini Doubles

This is the ultimate Trini street food. The Doubles Humbly wrapped in paper and sold in brown paper bags, I try to have this whenever I return home.

 

It is indigenous to Trinidad, out of our East Indian community. Made of two baras (hence the doubles) wrapped around curried channa (chickpeas, garbanzo beans) and topped with slight pepper, plenty pepper, cucumber chutney, mango chutney, coconut chutney, bandania/chadon beni, whatever is available.

 

You can either eat it all wrapped up as an easy to eat sandwich, or open it up and eat each bara separately to get optimum distribution of the contents.

UPDATE: Complete recipe.
