Roti & Dholl Puri
Dholl Puri is definitely our national dish. Made with thin flatbread stuffed with yellow split peas, it is served with curry, rougaille, chutney and pickles.

The briyani a fragrant rice dish with spices, potatoes and can be both vegetarian and non-vegetarian (meat, beef, fish). It’s different from the traditional biryani in India as it is less spicy but that’s what makes it unique in our Mauritian culture!
Often called “chilli cakes”, they are made from yellow split peas and are crispy from the outside. This typical Mauritian snack tastes amazingly good for breakfast accompanied with a hot tea or as an afternoon snack with hot sauce.
Noodles & Dumplings
They are called “ Mine Bouille ” and “ Boulette ” in our Mauritian language.

The Chinese dumplings(fish, beef, chicken, prawn or vegetarian) are part of the Sino-Mauritian cuisine; also known as dim-sum.
The mix of ethnicities is what makes Mauritius culinary heaven.
