It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in man.

Doubles is a common - street food in - Trinidad and Tobago . It is a - sandwich made with two flat fried breads, called "bhara" (hence the name "doubles") filled with curried - chick peas , commonly called channa. Topped with a variety of spicy chutneys, this delicacy is undoubtedly the most popular fast-food in Trinidad and Tobago.

The bread is a quick bread made of - flour , - baking powder , - salt , and ground - turmeric , which gives the bread its yellow color. It is flattened to a thin round disk about 3.5 inches in diameter and fried until golden brown. The bhara is then filled with the channa ready to be sold. There is no set recipe for the channa, which can be just curried or mixed with curry and dhaal (yellow split peas).

Bara is made from a dough of flour and powdered split peas, rolled thinnish and fried. Curried chick peas, or channa in Trinidad, is used to fill two baras, creating doubles. The word “doubles” is both singular and plural. Pepper and chutney can be added to suit your taste.
