Mashuni Roshi 

MashuniMashuni is a popular breakfast choice in the Maldives.

Essentially it is a very simple yet a tasty mix of coconut and tuna.

There are many varieties of Mashuni. Canned tuna can be substituted with smoked or dried tuna which brings a distinctly different taste to it.

Mashuni is usually eaten with Maldivian-style flat bread called “Roshi”

(Thin flat bread made of refined flour).

Another favorite that goes with Mashuni is the coconut bread, or “Huni roshi”. Most people enjoy a hot cup of sweet Black tea to enjoy the spiciness that comes along with the Maldivian Mashuni.
