Dholl Puri - Dhal Puri

The Dholl Puri is among the topmost favourite street food here in Mauritius. There is no escape to this delicious flatbread as it is very much sold almost anywhere around the island. 

Mauritius Dholl Puri is similar to a tortilla but made using yellow split peas. This is then wrapped around any variety of curries and pickled vegetables. Dholl Puri is popular street food in Mauritius that originated in India but is now quintessential Mauritian cuisine. 


Flour dough is stuffed with ground boiled channa dal and roasted cumin flattened and cooked on a hot pan to make a soft, delicious yellow flatbread best served with butter/lima beans curry along with different sides such as a Mauritian ”Rougaille” sauce.


Most street vendors will have both Roti and Dholl Puri on sale and as it’s a cheap convenient snack so why not try both!
