Acha Curry House - Jalan Gasing, Petaling Jaya


Achar Curry House - frequented during our Petaling Jaya years though I won't say regularly. Perhaps every few months once. Then, after residing in another area, this eatery was forgotten until we back were to PJ to meet a friend. So, mutually we agreed - "lets do the digging in with fingers banana leaf lunch" and after parking at the quite a big open parking space across this corner lot eatery, we walked in at about 1.30pm. Bustling with customers and the staff busy walking up and down with the trays of food, we stood for a while wondering if a table we can find. Well, I suppose by chance an empty table that near the kitchen. 
  
The dining area, don't expect anything special neither similar to an average Indian eatery. Resembling a stall like concept with the corner space extended and fully utilized, the floor just cemented, zing roofing, fans spinning full speed and tight sitting that mannerism is essential to gently pull the chair before sitting. Service on the other hand, excellent. Immediately. Banana leaf laid and in the quickest time, on the leaf - rice, veggies, curries, papadam and a small silver tumbler of rasam. 

.
For the side dishes/items, sit back and the staff will come by with the tray with the dishes in small plates. Point and pick and continue to tuck into your meal. The salted fish pickle, the puli inji/ginger pickle and ikan bilis sambal - just what you need for the zing-zest-spiciness for a wholesome banana leaf meal.


The fried bitter gourd, chicken varuval and mutton parathal/dry style - the customary extra dishes. Bitter gourd? An addition and not included the meal. The chicken and mutton - fared lets says 6/10, Extra ordinary or special? Nope, sorry I won't say. The fried fish, a must order for my half-half, masala marinated crispy fried, the commonly common Indian restaurant thingy.



For the curries, help yourself to banjir/flood your rice. The karuvadu/salted fish curry with field beans, radish and brinjals we opted for, plus-plus and plus in points. Awesome!!


To washed down the spiciness and for the burning sun beaming over the zing roof, chilled lassi. Anything I should say about this yoghurt drink? I'm afraid not.
Achar Curry house (Jalan 5/51, Bukit Gasing) along the same row as Kavitha's Curry House  - tip-top service, reasonably priced I am unsure (RM60.00), draws big groups of families on weekends and choices of dishes for lunch, they do feature.
