Gastronomia
A mixture of Indian, Creole, Chinese and European cuisines, Mauritian cuisine is fairly varied. However, Indian influence predominates, and on Mauritius you can find most of the characteristic dishes, such as byriani, samosas, curry or chutney. Rice is the basis for many dishes and food is generally spicy, as in India. Ask before you order in a restaurant, or you could end up with a dish too hot for you!

There are also the island’s culinary specialities such as the “Bol renversé”, a meat stew with rice served from an upside down bowl, “rougail à la mauricienne” (accompanied by a spicy tomato sauce, originally from Reunion) or “mine frit” (a noodle dish). There will certainly be a lot of grilled fish on the menu.

Tamarind juice and alouda (milk flavoured with grenadine, and thickened with local tapioca) are typical and refreshing drinks. It is better to drink bottled water. Finally, for rum enthusiasts, there is a distillery on the island.

Leave the kidney beans to soak in a bowl of hot water for around 1 hour. Finely chop up the onions and pomme d’amour tomatoes. Stew the onions in a pressure cooker, then add garlic, ginger and thyme. Leave to simmer for 2 minutes. Add the pomme d’amour tomatoes. Leave to cook for 3-5 minutes. Add the kidney beans and 750 cl of water. Season. Leave to cook for around 20 minutes. Sprinkle with chopped coriander at the end.
