mavheji says:

@seygra20 i was thinking the same too but everyone is different or he
forgot to take it out i guess

OriginalRipndip says:

Just made it for the 1st time myself. Called my mother and watched it. As a
young Guyanese-American male this video was a marriage of old favorites
with new style learning. God Bless

outragedlyrics says:

my family also roast tomatoes (peels the skin off) and then adds it to
baigan choka… the tomatoes adds alot of taste! Im not sure if it’s only a
guyanese thing though

abbytirbany says:

Debi White says:

Wow can’t wait to try it ♥

Halee M says:

Chris, please advise to remove pepper seeds before crushing. Using a hot
West Indian pepper can spell disaster.

trinitobago says:

Hello Chris with all the the mashing can one use a Blender

beatlejn says:

@seygra20 i thought that too but then i figured it’ll be charred beyond
recognition and the skin is not being eaten.

Hylton Fernandes says:

Great recipes, keep up the good work!

DiDi Charles says:

Because he’s not going to use the outer part anyway so it won’t matter but
to avoid the toxins from it going into your dish, you should take the
sticker off.

Winston Clifford says:

Chris you are doing a good job. This will help the generations to come,
that is lost to all the extra lessons in the name of education. Our
children are losing the basics. They do not have time to see Ma cooking.
Even Ma has lost the touch because she did not see Nanny do it. Keep it

trinitobago says:

Hi Chris great job on the Baigan choka
