  1. What's the difference between roti and curry chicken roti? Are you just eating the roti with the curry chicken to call it that or what? I'm confused.

  2. Great recipe and cooking, thanks! I have a question, I love a good West Indian roti with curried chicken, chickpeas, potatoes and spinach, can you tell me Chris, if I need the gravy to be much thicker, how do I go about getting it like that? Cheers
