‘Rougaille’ is a popular Mauritian dish which can be served along with any other dishes. You can eat it with bread, rice, pharata or even noodles. It is a delicious dish and very easy to prepare too.
What is so great with it is that you can add either one of these such as Mauritian ‘gateau piment’, soya chunks, fresh peas, meat, shrimps, fried or boiled eggs and fish at the end when the ‘Rougaille’ is cooked. You just have to add a small amount of water to it and let it simmer for 5 mins.
