    1. +SIHAM VEGANISTA You’re welcome. That’s great to hear, let me know how you like it if you try it. Always nice to hear about what people think. Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Closer, my authentic Mauritian street food experience gets ever closer! Can’t wait for the next videos! Thanks for posting this : )

    1. +tamcon72 One more video and you’ll have the full experience. πŸ˜€ I don’t know what’s the temperature like where you live but over here it’s getting cooler and it is the perfect time to have some hot roti and curry.

    1. +B1cam Yay! That sounds cool! I’d be happy to know what you and your guests thought of the recipes. Don’t hesitate to send me some pictures of the food (on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram) if you get the chance to take any.

  2. Wow, this curry looks amazing! When you started making the spice paste I thought I could smell it from here πŸ˜€ I have to restock on all the spices asap.
    While watching I was about to ask you something… but you answered at 3:57 before I could ask :>
    ps: did you ever consider opening a restaurant?

    1. +francesca β“‹ di leandro Spices are really essentials especially for winter comfort food. And yes, I have this curry a lot more often with rice than roti. Oh, a restaurant is a lot of work….I just like to cook and eat, lol! I can have guests though and you are invited anytime. πŸ™‚

    1. +Qaisar Meeajane Thanks for commenting. For bol renverse, you can use this Chop Suey recipe with rice –

  3. where can I buy those long red Chili’s I live in Colorado and I’ve tried all the Asian market and I just can’t seem to find them my husband is Indonesian and in a lot of their dishes they use those long red chillies just for coloring and a little bit of flavor they’re not very very hot but we just have been looking all over and we can’t find them I was wondering if maybe you had some suggestions

    1. +christina sibuea Hi Christina, I buy these chilies at my local fresh produce market. They always carry them and other types of chilies too. I’m in Montreal. So, I’m not sure where you’d find them in Colorado. I would have thought Asian stores would have them. Have you tried Indian stores? I sometimes get them from there too.

    1. +CarolNav That’s great. I’m be happy to know how you like it if you try it. πŸ™‚

  4. this looks so good!! I dont really know all those spices tough, i migh have to add other types of spices for my cultural taste. Thank you so much your channel is amazing!

    1. +APFC95 You can make this with just the ginger, curry powder and the turmeric (along with the tomatoes and herbs) if you can’t find the rest. It will still be delicious. Thank you for stopping by. πŸ™‚

    1. +Heather Wacker That’s great. I hope you enjoyed it. Thank you for your comment. πŸ™‚

  6. Hi Tanuja m from India but now in Mauritius,,I was very eager to learn Mauritanian food and suddenly found you. Thank you very much . Can you post some Diwali sweets receipes.

  7. Thanks for your reply.Yes Mauritius is full of Serene beauty,, it’s Heaven . I am enjoying. Waiting for your recipes friend.

    1. +Divine Gloury I'll try to work on a kuccha video in the future but it might be for some time as I have quite some recipes that I am working on. I hope you'll find them useful too. Stay tuned. πŸ™‚

    1. +Antonio the secret ingredient is unsalted butter it can literally save a dish and you can use it instead of oil all together, too much salt can ruin a dish and even butter can’t save it, instead season with fresh herbs like coriander and sweet Spanish oregano.

    2. +Veganlovlie | Vegan Mauritian-Fusion CuisineΒ — The only thing that’s keeping me going is my love for cooking food. I find it to be fascinating and fun. Thank you for the response. <3Β 

    3. +Antonio Aww, don’t give up so soon. Enjoy the process and preparation and it will come much easier. My partner has learnt how to cook little by little and now he has quite a few recipes that we’ve put on the channel. I am sure you will improve. I hope you will try again and most importantly have fun! πŸ™‚ ❀

    1. +ConlangFan – Oh! That’s great! Thank you for letting us know. It’s really pleasing to know that the recipe turned out good. πŸ™‚

  8. oh yum. l swear l could smell the deliciousness. l am definitely making this curry. Thank you for sharing.

    1. +Vicki Mac – My pleasure. Do let us know how it turns out if you’re trying it and thank you for commenting. πŸ™‚

  9. This is an authentic Mauritian food. I decided to surprise my Mauritian partner and cook something from his country. When he came home, first thing he said was it smells like Mauritian food and when he tried it he said this is just like in Mauritius. I liked it so much that I had 3 servings. Thank you πŸ™‚

    1. +patrycja musial – Wowww! Thank you so much for this wonderful comment. We had a good laugh reading this and could literally picture your partner getting all excited about eating his Mauritian food and the tears of joy flowing. We totally understand the feeling and I guess that anyone living abroad away from their home country do miss their local cuisine a lot — it’s a priceless feeling. We’re glad you enjoyed it too. ❀️

  10. I made it too, I found it bitter ( I’m so disappointed, I was so excited to make it:( ) . Almost threw it out! I know I cooked it out long enough at each stage. Could it be the fenugreek?

    1. +Dimy Ssg Fenugreek is a very delicate spice, a little too much and it will turn out bitter. If you roasted it (along with the other spices) for too long too, it will turn out bitter. Maybe try to use less or just omit it. The curry will still be delicious without it, so many people have made and loved this curry. Let me know how it turns out if you try it again.

    1. Hi there, it’s great to have you here. Garam masala adds to the taste of this curry, but if you do not have it, it should be fine to use curry powder only. πŸ™‚

  11. It’s sad that I discovered your channel this year.i love your recipes.i’m getting married next year and your vids help a lot!

  12. hi ! thank you so much for your channel ! i’m from mauritus and i’m glad to see your recipes !! i love your videos πŸ™‚

  13. Thank you so much! Finally a recipe that looks really authentic and tastey. Thanks for sharing your talent and time.

  14. Veganlovlie Recipes / Curry: A simple white bean curry recipe that comes together rather quickly. I usually keep pre-boiled beans (from dried) portioned out in the freezer, ready to be used, but you can certainly use canned beans. Because of their size, white navy beans work well as a roti filler but Great Northern Beans, cannellini or lima or butter beans are good substitutes.✿ FULL PRINTABLE RECIPE β–Ά
