Gateau Piment or Mauritian Dal Fritters are a very easy snacks recipe. It is one of the most popular snacks (or street food) in Mauritius. I love them,especially on bread with butter :D. I know it might sound a little bit fattening, but it is so good! And I only have them on Sundays :D. Also, you could have these Mauritian dal fritters (gateau piment) made into a tomato sauce, or rougaille. You make the dal fritters as explained in the recipe below and make the rougaille (or tomato sauce), add the dal fritters and done! My mom would usually make a rougaille with the left-over dal fritters because gateau piments are only good when they are still hot and freshly done.
These Mauritian dal fritters, also known as chilli cakes, will have you wanting more! I hope you enjoy this Mauritian recipe. And don’t forget to check out my other Mauritian recipes!
