The Best of Maldivian Cuisine – Giving your taste buds the treat of their lives

Delicious! It is the perfect word that goes along with Maldivian food lore. You will simply be at a loss when you have to pick the very best of the Maldivian cuisine.

 

Mashuni

 

Ask anyone even a foreigner about Mashuni. They will tell you what it is. For Mashuni is the commonest breakfast you will come across in the Maldives. This delicacy has flourished decades owing to its spicy taste emanating from the smoked tuna dish with coconut.

 

 

DhonRiha

 

DhonRiha literally means fair curry. It is a white fish curry with a coconut milk base, and a number of spices to give it a unique flavour. If you are in this country on a romantic holiday, ensure to reserve your stay in a resort that offers private dining in Maldives the likes of Anantara Dhigu Maldives Resort which serves these best of Maldivian cuisine.

 

 

Garudhiya

 

This is a flavoursome fish broth that is served with rice, onions, chilli and lime. It’s a fabulous comfort food and the broth is quite wholesome.

 

DhonkeyoKajuru

 

This is another dessert that is unique to Maldives. Although it appears like your average banana fritter, the Maldivian twist comes from the addition of coconut to the coating. Thus, it is best of both the worlds, the beloved bananas enveloped in a taste of Maldives.
