Guyana, which is located in South American country is considered part of the Caribbean and shares much of the culture of Trinidad, Jamaica and other Caribbean countries. Most foods are produced locally: sugar certainly was the reason for many of the laborers of different ethnic backgrounds to arrive there. In addition to sugar, rice, fruit, vegetable, Guyana’s world famous rum and sea food. Since Guyana is the land of six peoples and one being East Indian, the cuisine of Guyana is heavily influenced by India, just like Kurma or as commonly called in Guyana “Mitthai”. Mitthai is a fried, vegan, sweet dessert made out of flour. It is very popular in Guyana at religious and special functions and has its own Caribbean influence.
