Potato Roti Curry

Potato Roti Curry Recipe
Randy Mayor
This mild, soupy side dish hails from the Caribbean, where it's often made with sweet calabaza squash and served alongside or stuffed into the tortillalike Indian flatbread roti. While roti is traditional, whole wheat tortillas or pitas are great accompaniments for sopping up the liquid. Serve with lime wedges and rice.
