Three Musamma Curries

Category: Lonumedhu Lists

 

One distinctive characteristic of a ‘musamma’ curry is the fried onions, ‘kanamadhu’ (sea almonds) and raisins, which gives the curry a bit of sweetness and crunch. Another characteristic is the use of roasted spices.

‘Musamma’ curries are great with both ‘roshi’ (Maldivian flatbread) and rice, and below are the recipes for three versions of this lovely dish.
