Hailing from Addu Atoll (the southern-most islands of the Maldives), the Addu Bendi is a sausage-shaped sweet and without a doubt the most popular export from these southern islands. This sweet delicacy is made of grated coconut, golden syrup and jasmine flavoured water - wrapped in a dry banana leaf. Fun Fact: The original Adduan ancestors would take Addu Bendi to trade with Maldivians in the other Atolls and also as far as Sri Lanka
