Ladob is a Seychellois dish based on plantains, breadfruit, and cassava. It can be prepared in sweet or savory versions. The dessert version is prepared by boiling plantains or cassava in coconut milk, along with nutmeg, vanilla, and sugar as flavorings.

When properly made, the dessert has a tender and creamy texture. The savory version uses salted fish boiled in coconut milk with plaintains, cassava, nutmeg, and salt. Ladob is very popular throughout the island, and it is served either hot or cold.
