Flap N. Blab says:

Guyanese roti is very different than Indian roti, might look similar in a video but its different. Indian roti would be thrown out by most Guyanese

U kids need to learn how to use the internet & kashwarikwilliams U need to talk to your parents

ABSOLUTELY NOT..Guyana is not the same thing as India in a different part of the world, how can you say a foolish ridiculous thing like that

Guyana is a former British CARIBBEAN colony multiethic multicultural country influenced by a variety of cultures

You should practise first – not make it up as you go along – too jarring for the viewer – needs fluidity and confident delivery – also focussing irritating. do it again.

How ignorant of you. Just because you’ve ever heard of it doesnt mean its not their core dish and seeing as you’ve never heard of it how do you know who created it first???? Yes its similar to Indian Roti but similar food have different methods in different countries so she is saying that this is how its done in GUYANA not that it isnt done this way anywhere else….
