Maldivian Recipes

Dhumashi is a book of  Maldivian recipes which we hope to publish soon.

In this blog we will be publishing a number of selected recipes from our book.

This book is  authored by the two of us, Aishath Ali Naaz and Soba Ahmed and is a result of sharing a kitchen for seven months. We wish to bring the changing flavours of Maldivian cooking through our 250 recipe book.

We have tested and tasted these recipes,. We hope it will be accepted by young people especially by students who live abroad who has to cook up good meals real fast which retain the flavours of home. We have also presented some of our favaourite traditional dishes.

Hope you would love these recipes  as much as we do!

    Hi,For my 6 years stay in different islands. I taste a lot of local cuisine and sweets. I like most of it the same hospitality l received from all my local friends. However, my only mistake is not to know what is local name. Hope, each recipe in your book have particular pictures. God Bless and more power to both of you.
