Right here in my neighbourhood there’s this curry house that has been serving crowds in its modest premises. Serving Chettinad-style mixed with other Southern Indian dishes, food here is displayed in vegetarian and non-vegetarian shelves. Service is brisk and friendly and together with the very decent dishes, so it’s not hard to see why this place has been packing in the crowds.
We have tried both their lunch and breakfast offerings and have been impressed with the quality. A standard set of banana leaf rice costs RM7 – unlimited rice with vegetarian items and loads of curry gravies. It also comes with resam and a dessert – we had the carrot keseri.
Standard set of Banana Leaf Rice
Of course we had to order more dishes to go with our standard banana leaf rice. Everything on their shelves looked good and we had a tough time deciding. In the end, we ordered fried chicken wings (RM4.80 each), mutton masala (RM8), chicken kicap (RM6.50), deep-fried sotong (RM6) and my must-have deep-fried bittergourd (RM2).
Mutton Masala (RM8)
Chicken Kicap (RM6)
Deep-fried crunchy Bittergourd (RM2)
Deep-fried Chicken Wings (RM9.60 for 2 pieces)
Despite the full-house on a weekend lunch hour, service was pretty quick. Before long, all our dishes appeared and buckets of fish, chicken and dhall curry were left on our table, for unlimited flooding of our rice. Their fish curry came with generous amounts of vegetable in it, like brinjals, tomatoes and Indian beans.
Fried Squids (RM6)
The squids were fried only upon order. Although the portion was kinda small, it more than made up with freshness and flavour. The squid rings were well-marinated and had a nice fresh bouncy texture.
Vadai with Coconut Chutney
At breakfast time, favourites like roti, thosai, string hoppers, vadai and idli are available. Their roti could have been better, ie thinner and crispier but their thosai was spot-on. My rawa thosai was beautifully thin, crisp and lacy, dotted with chopped carrots and onions. I love how their dhall curry was thick and tasty, perfect with the roti and thosai! Their mint chutney was really good too.
Prices are decent, portions generous (particularly the mutton and chicken dishes) so it’s easy to see why this place is a big hit with the residents around.
Good variety of Indian desserts are available too
By the way, check out their curry puffs too – available only in the afternoon, around 1pm. Freshly fried, the curry puffs were bursting with delicious vegetarian fillings and it’s only RM0.80 per piece! So affordable and yummy!
