When you walk around Mitakawani, you will find chilli plants growing everywhere. These chilli peppers known as ‘Pili Pili Hoho’ in Zanzibar are of the local, traditional variety. They use them to make their own masala mixes for their fish, curries or to even sprinkle over mango! Be warned, these are super hot but also incredibly fragrant. We left them whole, to keep all the aromas locked in. Use them whole in a stir fry or grind them to a powder, the choice is yours and flavour is 100% guaranteed!
