Sada roti is a simple Indo-Caribbean flatbread that came to the West Indies and is popular in both Trinidad & Guyana, and Guyana. In the time since it was introduced during Indian Indentureship,it has become a popular breakfast dish in both of those countries. One reason for this popularity, is because sada roti is versatile, ideal for eating with a broad range of dishes like tomato choka, and blackened fried plantains. Another reason is because sada roti is easy to make and simply requires some practice.
