This week we are seeking the name of the island where this interestingly different dish is prepared as both a starter and main course.

INGREDIENTS

1lb lamb or kid, minced

2 green papaya

1 onion, finely chopped

1 clove garlic, crushed

6oz tomato concassé

11/2oz cheese, grated

1 red chilli

1fl oz oil

Bunch parsley, chopped

30fl oz light stock

Milled salt and pepper

METHOD

Cut the papaya in half lengthways and remove the seeds. Heat the oil and sweat the onion and garlic. Add the meat and cook until lightly brown, then add the tomatoes, chillies and seasoning. Continue to cook for another five minutes then mix in the parsley. Fill each of the papaya halves with the meat and place in a baking tray. Pour in sufficient stock to half cover the shells and then bake at 180ºC for one hour. Sprinkle with 1oz cheese and return to the oven for 30 minutes. Remove, sprinkle with the remainder of the cheese and serve.

ADDITIONAL CLUES

  • Curry and dhalpouri are both favourites on this island, introduced by indentured servants from India.

  • Probably the most expensive and the most sought-after coffee in the world is grown on this island.
