The Culinary Trip around the World stops in Guyana.

Guyana is a South American country with heavy Caribbean influences. Most foods are produced locally: rice, fruit, vegetable, sugar, rum and sea food. Yet the cuisine Guyana’s is influenced by India, just like Kurma. Kurma is a fried, vegan, sweet and floury dessert.

Kurma is Indian but still very popular in the small country of Guyana. It is a staple in the local cuisine and got its own Caribbean twist.

Before I tried it, I was quite sceptical. What does fried dough taste like?
The answer is simple, delightful. I just love the sugar and ginger combination the frosting adds to the basic ingredients.

It is a good mood food that brings you a little bit of (Indian) Caribbean feeling to your kitchen.
