Rougaille inspired dish

Friday I went to the market and bought a lot of tomatoes and I wished to make some sort of tomatoes sauce. Browsing the web I found out many sauces but the following one is inspired from the rougaille recipe, a common mauritius dish. Here is the blend of this recipe with the romanian sauces.


  • 1/2 kg tomatoes
  • 2 tbs curcuma powder
  • 1 tbs ginger powder
  • 2 hot peppers
  • 2 green onions, 4 gloves garlic
  • 3 portions of meat (I used pork meat)
  • 4 tbs sunflower oil


  • cut the tomatoes much smaller than used to
  • mix the ginger, curcuma, 2 tbs water and the peppers in a grinder
  • cut the onions and garlic, brown them in oil
  • when 70% done, add the curcuma mix and stir for 2 minutes
  • add the tomatoes and let boil on a medium flame until tomatoes are almost soft
  • mean while cut the meat in bite size chunks and brown just a very little bit
  • add to the sauce and let it boil until 5 minutes
  • let it rest for 15 – 30 minutes to let the meat get the flavour
  • enjoy
