Chow time! What fruits are you having?

By Marissa Armoogam. One thing that must be known the world over is the love a Trinbagonian has for his stomach. We love food especially when it’s chow time. It’s not so much a grab and eat situation, when we eat it is an experience each time, of course there are times when we have to eat and run, but on most occasions and in most families the meal is what makes the celebration whatever it may be.

When we cook we seldom follow a recipe, the meal is cooked with time acquired know-how, we taste as we go along and add a pinch here and dash there… you know we put lots of love into it and we imagine our loved ones enjoying it and that in itself propels us forward to want to make it even yummier.

Anyway this article is not about any gourmet meals but a favourite of every Trinbagonian at least that I know. It’s CHOW time! Now chow can be described as anything that you can add some savoury seasonings and within minutes you have a mouth-watering snack that when eaten usually just opens up your appetite.

I consider myself a bit of a “Chow Connoisseur”. I have made chow with almost every fruit you can think of, both local and foreign fruits. There are many different methods that Trinis use to make a good chow. I have tried most of these variations but I always gravitate back to my favourite recipe.

So now I share with you my time honoured and very delicious and simple method for making a Trini Chow. Now remember you can use any fruit of your choice from mangoes, plums, guavas, green paw-paw, cherries, etc… the list can go on for miles.

Recipe for your chow time craving

Ingredients

Fruit of your choice cut up into bite size pieces (I prefer them thinly sliced)

Bandhania (chadon beni), blended or finely chopped

Grated garlic

Hot pepper, cut up (you can use hot sauce too)

Black pepper

Salt

Method

Mix all the ingredients in with the cut up fruit and enjoy.

Some folks like to add some water to make a sauce for the fruit to soak in, others lay the chow out in the sun to make the pepper hotter, and some add curry powder for flavour.

So whatever your preference, it is an ideal and inexpensive snack that is healthy and fast.

  1. Based on an article in the Wall Street Journal , weight loss pro Jenna Grifith says the best Garcinia cambogia dosage for effectiveness is at
    least 800 milligrams three times a day (for a total
    of 2400 milligrams or more a day), taken 30 minutes before eating.

  2. Thus, if you could purchase Garcinia Cambogia at Walmart, then you were.
