Tasty Jamaican Bulla Recipe
With Ginger

This Jamaican Bulla Recipe is easy to follow and the end result is flavourful, fresh and tasty.

Bulla can be eaten with anything of your choice and liking but to tell you the truth, the best thing to eat bulla with is PEAR or Avocado if you wish.

Bulla and Pear (Avocado) is an old time favorite, especially in the Jamaican countryside. This traditional style of eating bulla is adopted by many generations of Jamaicans as well as other internationals.

However, to date, more and more people have been eating bulla with a number of other things. These include fried fish (sprat, snapper, parrot), butter (margarine), peanut butter, cheese, etc. Anything you can think of that can accompany bulla, we Jamaicans have tried it already!

This recipe is a Jamaican Ginger Bulla Recipe. However, if you would just like to have a regular bulla recipe, just omit the ginger from the list of ingredients and you will have just a normal flavoured Jamaican bulla.

It will have more of a vanilla flavoured taste than anything else. But, like any other recipe, this too can be altered to suit your preferences.

Let us get started with the process!!
