Saheena Bites | Gluten Free & Vegan
Just by looking at me you wouldn’t think it but as with most people in Trinidad we’re all mixed up and on my dad’s side we have some East Indian roots. And although I mightn’t want it everyday, they’re times when Trinidad infused Indian cuisine is something that I crave and one of the things I love next to Pholourie is Saheena! And these Gluten Free Sahenna will not disappoint.
A favourite not only for me but also my family and friends, I decided to create a gluten free version that was quick, easy to enjoy and simple enough for anyone to make.
Made from Dasheen Bush (or Taro Leaves), it can be rolled or chipped up and added to a batter then deep fried. We chose the latter and turned them into little Gluten Free Saheena Bites that are full of flavor and so easy to enjoy. Especially when served with my Mango Chutney.

They look delicious! I am also fascinated by how various foods from India get a fusion version as we migrate. My site Indfised is also about Indian and Indian fusion in America.
