    Roxanne J.R.'s Note:

    I love buss-up-shut and always thought it was a hard roti to make till I found a recipe for it. It is so easy and delicious! Buss-up shut, when finished is supposed to be flaky and silky soft. If it is crunchy, you overcooked it (I did that the first time I attempted it! lol) I use all butter instead of ghee sometimes and it turns out fantastic.
