The Hokey Cokey ! No, I said the Keto Roti !
The Hokey Cokey, as it's known in the UK, or Hokey Pokey, as it's called in other countries is a dance with a distinctive accompanying tune and lyric structure. It is well known in English-speaking countries. It originates in a British folk dance, as early as 1826. In the UK, the song and accompanying dance peaked in popularity as a music hall song and novelty dance in the mid-1940s. The song became a chart hit twice in the 1980s. The first UK hit was by the Snowmen, which peaked at UK No. 18 in 1981.
I have many fond memories of doing the Hokey Cokey at dances and family get-togethers and it is always popular with younger family members, as they follow the songs instructions for putting their hands, feet, or whole-self into the circle and 'shake them all about'.
As the UK looks forward to celebrating the Queens Platinum Jubilee later this year with a whole host of events, street parties and more planned, it could be that families, friends and neighbours will once again enjoy dancing the Hokey Cokey, we shall see, but I hope so 😊
They may also be enjoying a 'Keto Roti' ... what's that I hear you ask? It's a soft and foldable flatbread perfect for scooping up food. I came across this lovely keto/low carb recipe idea from Libby at 'Ditch The Carbs' site. She says, at only 3g net carbs per serving these low-carb coconut flour roti are soft and foldable, but won't fall apart. (They can also be made with almond flour). The Roti is perfect for breakfast burritos, wraps for lunch, or served on the side of dinner. So good for use with a keto/low carb curry or Mexican recipe. Yum 😋
