“Doubles” is a popular street food in Trinidad and Tobago, which consists of two pieces of flatbread (called “bara”) filled with a spicy chickpea curry (called “channa”). Doubles can be found throughout Tobago, particularly at roadside stalls, and is a favorite among locals and visitors alike.

The bara is made from a mixture of flour, baking powder, salt, and other seasonings, which is then fried until it is soft and fluffy. The channa is made by boiling chickpeas with a blend of spices, including cumin, turmeric, and garlic. The channa is then mashed and mixed with a spicy pepper sauce and served on top of the bara.

Doubles are often served with various condiments, such as tamarind sauce, cucumber chutney, and hot pepper sauce, which can be added to taste. They are typically eaten for breakfast or as a snack, and are a popular on-the-go food option. If you’re visiting Tobago, trying a doubles from one of the local vendors is a must-try culinary experience!
