We cannot overlook the Indian culture we have in our cuisine.The Indian workers who migrated to Mauritius after the abolition of slavery has kept their own culinary tradition. Ingredients that are mostly used are: rice, whole wheat flour and a variety of pulses.Some common dishes coming from the Indian culture are: curry, chutney, rougaille and pickles.
The use of fresh meat, fresh vegetables and sauces like soy sauce and oyster sauce represent the Chinese aspect of Mauritian cuisine.
The blend of diverse culture and religion is mostly reflected in our dishes. We can say Mauritius cuisine is a medley of flavors. It is more like a combination of different cuisine.
