Double Buns?

Does anyone know if double buns are available for sale, anywhere in the GTA?

I believe that they are traditionally made from chic pea flour, and even a recipe would do.

  1. I don't have a helpful response for you, but I just wanted to clarify that you mean the bread for Trini doubles, yes?

    1. I think some people call it bara. I doubt anyone sells them retail. If you go to your favorite doubles place I am sure they would sell you just the bread.

      1. Maybe one of the small west indian shops would have them, we have several here in Brampton for example.. But I have never personally seen them for sale. Then again, I never paid attention to look..

        1. i dont think you will find the "bara" for sale since this is something that is usually made shortly before the doubles are assembled, the bara has a very short shelf life. your best bet would be to do a google search for Doubles Recipes and making your own would be your best bet.
