7 amazing dishes from the Maldives - Divine indulgence in the Maldives.

Apart from the stunning blue sea and the white sandy beaches the Maldives has so much to offer when it comes to the mouth-watering food and beverages.


Mas Huni

Mas Huni is one of the most popular dishes in the Maldives. It is a delightful dish which is made of shredded Salmon, scraped coconut and lime, along with salt and chilli to taste. Grand Park Kodhipparu Maldives is known to serve a delightful Mas Huni which tastes like a homemade dish. This dish is mostly known as a breakfast in the Maldives and generally eaten with Roshi which is a roti like an Indian Chapati bread.



Masroshi is a delightful dish where chapati or roti is stuffed with smoked Tuna and coconut. The smoked tuna is pre-cooked with spices and curry leaves which makes the combination absolutely mouth-watering. This can be found in many households and restaurants. The dish is a popular snack that is enjoyed during the main meals. With time, apart from the tuna filling Masroshi is now available with onions and vegetable fillings.


Bis Keemiya

If you love samosa, then you are bound to fall in love with Bis Keemiya as it is similar to Samosa crispier. The stuffing is made with several different combinations, but the original Bis Keemiya is made with tuna, a hard-boiled egg mixed with sliced onions and shredded cabbage. Bis Keemiya is one recipe that has developed with time. With the number of tourists that are flowing into the country, the Bis Keemiya fillings have also developed into a variety ranging from chicken, fish, seafood and even vegetables.


Fried Yams

Fried Yams are a must-try street food option in the Maldives. Yams are available in abundance in the Maldives, so they prepare yams in many different ways. The most common preparation of the yams is to cut them into thin slices like French fries and then deep fry them. There are many street food sellers that make this and serve with different types of sauces.


Reef Fish Cutlets

Reef Fish Cutlets are not the same without the sides that they are accompanied with. The cutlets have a spicy Tandoor masala flavoured reef fish filling. The sides are generally either chutney made of papaya, mango or a combination of mint, coconut and cucumber. This is a popular finger food dish at Breeze Poolside Dining & Bar as it is absolutely divine.


Saagu Bondibai

Saagu Bondibai is definitely the most popular dessert in the Maldives and if you fail to try this when in the Maldives you haven't experienced the Maldives to its fullest. Sabudana or Sago is a very common ingredient in most Maldivian dishes. It is a warm dessert which is mixed with coconut milk, another delightful ingredient Maldivians cannot do without, and condensed milk. This is one of the best vegan food that is available in the Maldives.


Aluki Boakibaa

This sweet is definitely the most popular sweet that is popular among locals and tourists alike. Aluki Boakibaa is made with sweet cassava and coconut which is made into a cake and cut into small pieces. The small cubes melt in your mouth making you want more. Even though it is generally made for special occasions, due to the high demand it is now available in many cafes and restaurants.
