Weekly Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition

This is a roti – a simple dough mixture of flour, oil and water, fried on a huge hotplate, cooked to order, eaten wrapped in paper at the roadside. The dough has been kneaded, stretched and folded in on itself before frying, to make it resemble puff pastry when ready. The traditional accompaniments are a dusting of sugar and a drizzling of Carnation condensed milk. Alternatively, one may choose to have jam spread over the roti (nothing wrong with this; my father enjoys strawberry preserve on leftover Yorkshire puddings). But what jam to choose? The juxtaposition of a dollop of chocolate spread next to an electric blue splodge of goodness-knows-what was the solution to this problem.
