    Hi! Just pondering in here and realized that you’ve used Dorset Naga interchangeable with Githeyo Mirus. Although you can find Dorset Naga in the Maldives, the real githeyo mirus is actually what is known as Scotch Bonnet which is typically found in the Maldivies among a few other countries. You can get the facts checked out yourself and make the necessary corrections.

    Lime juice works MUCH better than lemon juice for this recipe.

    I am very happy that finally I came to know how to prepare rihaakuru. I tasted this in Maldives some years back and found it to be very tasty. Since then I tried to get it in Sri-lanka, but failed.
    Finally thanks to Google, I managed to get the recipe Rihaakuru. I am determined to prepare it at the next opportunity.

    I was very hesitant to try this, but I like all the ingredients separately so hoped it might be good together. This is delicious. I drained a can of tuna in oil, added 2 drops of liquid smoke. I used lime because of a comment and a red spicy chili pepper (not as hot as habanero). I will be making this again.

    Am I the only one missing “hikki mas” in booth, gulha and mashuni, recipes?
    Since a couple of years, hikki mas is available in Switzerland under the name “Maldive Chips” (Kings Foods)
