Divali Recipe Corner – Callaloo Box

APRIL BOX THEME: THE TRINIDAD & TOBAGO SNACK BOX. SHOP NOW!



Taste of Trini was established in September 2015 by Reshmi Rampersad when she began living in New York. She recreated recipes taught to her by her mother as a way of keeping in touch with her West Indian roots. The channel later evolved to include vlogs by Reshmi and her sister, Anandi, which showcase the lifestyle and culture of both Trinidad and Tobago and New York.  The aim of the channel is to share the food and culture of Trinidad and Tobago with the rest of the world, as well as to preserve the traditions that were passed on in their family over generations.

Divali Recipes by Taste of Trini

Bhagi Pholourie & Baiganee
Today I am using a few ingredients that I received in my Callaloo Box this month. Learn how to make this simple Pholourie with a twist! I've combined Pholourie, Saheena and Baiganee in one! This will make for an epic Divali appetizer. Your guests will thank you.

Kurhi (Karhee)
Kurhi or Karhee is one of our main Divali dishes back in Trinidad and Tobago. It is also a popular item at Hindu Prayers, and it is typically served on a sohari leaf over a bed of rice.

Saheena
This delicious appetizer and one of the most loved Trini street foods is also a popular Divali dish.  Saheena is a spinach (dasheen bush/taro leaves) fritter made with a split pea and flour batter and eaten with your choice of chutney.
