One of the best things I recently discovered in Hulhumalé was the Crispy Chili Kotthu from Mamak. It looks like an average kotthu but it is deemed something special by most everyone who tries it. Fused with their own chili chicken curry sauce, this kotthu is perfect with its crispiness and rich flavors. It comes with poppadum and a runny omelet which seeps into the dish and makes it taste instantaneously better! For the best experience, I would suggest adding chili oil and chili paste to it.
