    Member #610488's Note:

    These delicious snacks are served on the side of the road down Trinidad way. Kind of like the Fast Food of the Caribbean. This recipe comes from the book A Taste of the Tropics by Jay Solomon, since I could not get anyone to share their secret recipe.

      I made the pumpkin curry and instead of the chicken I used spinach. I like the recipe although I did have to add more curry powder and other spices. I would make this again.
