History of Mauritius
Mauritius has been colonized by various countries because it is conveniently located as a transit point.
Of those countries, one of the countries that most influenced the current Mauritius food culture is France.
In 1715, France, which had colonized the neighboring island of Reunion, settled in Mauritius.
It became a British territory from 1810, but probably due to a treaty, Britain did not rule and French landlords continued to live.
Mauritius is now an independent member of the Commonwealth of Nations, but is strongly influenced by French culture.
Daube de poulet
Modern Mauritius is a multi-ethnic state.
It is made up of Indians, Chinese, Africans, and French, who have arrived as workers.
Daube de poulet is a dish tailored to the social environment of Mauritius, such as changing beef to chicken in beef stew brought in by the French in the 18th century, and Indians who make up 70% of the population use various spices.
I feel that chicken and dry white wine go well together, so I made it with it.
It is difficult to express, but it is between stew and curry with various flavors.
My recipe has a strong acidity.
Also, using curry powder is delicious.
