Merveilles is a favorite , this deep fried, crisp bread is served with hot sauce or coriander chutneys. You still find the vendors on the beaches or the street of the Capital district Port-Louis selling these marvellously light and crispy goodies .


2 Cups of all purpose flour
3 tbsp of oil or ghee
Salt to taste
Sufficient water to make a dough
Oil for frying


Sieve flour
Add salt , oil or ghee and sufficient water to make a dough
Dough should not be too hard nor too soft
Let it rest for 15 mins
Divide into smaller portions
Roll out as thinly as possible into a disc and prick the surface with a fork
The above step is very important so that the "merveilles" don't puff up while frying
Heat oil and fry the "merveilles" until crisp and golden in colour
Serve with coriander chutney or hot sauce
