    Doubles recipe - a Trinidadian Favorite

    Hi Imixers: I always thought "doubles" was somehting else, till I saw the recipe. I love learning new things.

    Doubles - Trinidadian Favorite

    Doubles

    This is a Trinidadian favorite and is very very good. Doubles consists of curried channa (chick peas) between two Baras (a type of bread).

    Dough for Bara

    2 cups flour
    ½ tsp. Salt
    1 tsp. Saffron powder
    ½ tsp. Ground cumin (geera)
    1 tsp yeast
    1/3-cup warm water
    ¼ tsp. Sugar
    Oil for frying
    Additional water

    In a large bowl combine flour, salt, saffron and cumin (geera). Put aside. In another bowl place warm water, sugar and yeast. Let sit for about 5 min. until the yeast and sugar are dissolved. Add the yeast mixture to the flour mixture with enough water to make slightly firm dough. Mix well. Cover and let rise for about 1-½ hours. Punch the dough down and let it sit for another 10 – 15 min.

    To shape Bara, take about 1 tbsp of dough, pat with both hands to flatten to a 5”circle. If dough sticks to hand moisten palms with some water. Fry in hot oil, turning once until cooked. Remove and drain on a paper towel.

    Channa Filling

    ½ lb dried channa (chick peas) soaked overnight
    1 ½ tbsp. Curry powder
    3 cloves garlic, minced/crushed
    1 onion (sliced)
    Salt to taste
    Hot pepper to taste
    1 tbsp. Corn oil
    Pinch of ground geera (cumin powder)
    Pepper Sauce (to taste)

    Boil soaked channa (chick peas) with salt and ½ tbsp curry powder until channa is tender. Drain. Mix 1 tbsp curry powder with ¼ cup water. Heat oil in a large skillet and add the garlic, onion, and curry powder mixture. Sauté for a few min. Add the channa. Stir to coat well with the curry mixture and cook for about 5 min. Add 1-cup water, geera (cumin), salt, and pepper. Cover, lower heat and let simmer until the peas are very soft. Add more water if you need. Channa should be soft and moist. Add more salt if needed.

    Finishing – Putting the two together

    Put about 2 tbsp. cooked curry channa on a Bara. Cover with another Bara. You can also add mango chutney, tamarind chutney or pepper sauce before putting the second Bara on top.

    ENJOY!!!!

    My sense is that yuh could use de same dough tuh make pholourie, just fry de dough as balls, but ah could be wrong.

    I will definitely be saving and trying this recipe.
