Traditional Maldivan cuisine is based on coconut, fish and starches such as rice. Take a traditional breakfast with Mas Huni, a dish of finely chopped tuna, onion coconuts and chilli and eaten with freshly baked rosh flatbread. One of the best ways to sample the fresh fish is with the mouth watering Fihunu Mas; barbecued fish basted with chilli. For dessert, try Maldivian sliced justard, or as its locally known, Bis Haluvaa. Made with ghee, sweetened condensed milk and eggs this chilled dessert is the perfect ending to a locally inspired meal.
