Mauritian food delivery from local restaurants

Island nation Mauritius has been occupied by Arabs, Portuguese, Dutch, French, and the British before achieving independence. This small island off the eastern coast of Madagascar has only been inhabited for 500 years, and settlers are the direct result of military outposts and introduced workers--first African, then Indian and Chinese--for sugar and rum production. Mauritians are extremely multicultural and multilingual both of which are reflected in Mauritian cuisine. An appreciation of foreign dishes is just starting to make room for indigenous agriculture.

Mauritian Creole cooking is characterised by African-French fusion, but the first Australian arrivals from Mauritius capitalised on their Frenchness by running some of the most authentically French restaurants in Australia for over 40 years. Creole as a language and cuisine here is African- and Indian-influenced with a heavy dependence on French vocabulary and technique. Mauritian Creole differs from that found in the Americas with tropical produce unique to the island. A number of other vegetables have been introduced, but the greater reliance on aubergines, cabbages, calebasses, patty pan squash, and margose sets Mauritius apart. Locally grown malabar, cresson, and cabbage are boiled with spices, vinegar, bacon stock, and honey to create a unique Creole-cooked roughage. Mauritian fruit (mango, banana, papayas, pineapple, lychee, longan, etc.) has more in common with India and China than that found in the Americas. Australian neighbours are finding their cuisine fused with Mauritius. The sauce sambal is made from chillies, vinegar, and alliums (onions, shallots, or garlic). Lime juice or rice vinegar may substitute. Fish sauce may act as a supporting ingredient. Here a mackerel sambal supports a Mauritian Creol chilli-laced prawn dish. Elements of Indian and Chinese culinary traditions are more prevalent in the Mauritian homeland, but they are finding their way to Australia as well.
