The Cape Malay cuisine is characterised by aromatic, strong flavours with complex lists of ingredients. There are some Asian elements that are easier to identify in traditional Cape Malay dishes, but there are also plenty of African and European nuances too. Popular Cape Malay dishes include plenty of fish (having lived off the produce of the sea on their doorstep since their arrival), as well as stews, roasts and spicy curries. The aromatic nature of their dishes is due to the cinnamon, saffron, tamarind, and fruit that they like to add, not forgetting plenty of chillies.
They are also famous for their homemade chutneys and atchar. Many of their seafood dishes are salted (such as snoek served with apricot jam), curried or pickled. This hails back to the days in which they did not have refrigerators, being forced to preserve the dishes in some other way.
