I love coconut. I really do. Really. Coconut just is so amazing. If it has coconut in it, I will eat it. I honestly can’t believe it took me this long to post this recipe. Its one of my most favorite Guyanese baked goods. This red coconut roll, what Guyanese call salara, is mainly a bread recipe that has been filled with red-colored coconut, rolled up, then baked off until brown. It is usually eaten at any time of the day. I enjoy it for breakfast with a cup of tea or in the afternoon as a snack. I’m not sure why the coconut is red, but it is what makes this roll recognizable to a Guyanese.
Give coconut a quick chop.
