Breadfruit chips are a favourite snack. Octopus curry and smoked fish salads are absolute favourites among locals and tourists. Chatini is a must have accompaniment, served cold and made of thinly sliced marinated vegetables and fruits, cooked or raw. It is less sweet than its Indian counterpart.
Seychelles has some unusual local food too and one must know about them before ordering. So if you findRousettes on the menu, then you must know that you are ordering a dish made with fruit bats. A Shark Chutney is a dish of shark meat cooked and mashed with a small cucumber, bilimbi, and lime juice. It’s ideally served with rice, green papaya salad and lentils. A desert made from sweet potato and ripe plantain, boiled in coconut milk with nutmeg, sugar and vanilla is called Ladob.
