Restaurant Sri Paandi (Section 11, Petaling Jaya)

Our familiar ground. Maybe not like always, but whenever the thought of Restaurant Sri Paandi pops up. Especially for a banana leaf meal and also due to the convenience of location from where we stay. What can you expect in Restoran Sri Paandi? Like I have already told you, banana leaf meal and other choices can be roti canai, chappati, tosai, idli and snacks for tea time. Worthy mentioning is their service and you can pop by from morning till their shutters come down late at night.  

Back to Restaurant Sri Paandi on this particular Sunday for an early dinner and while walking in, we did notice the snacks at the front table and prior to us taking our seats.
What did we order? My other half-half opted for freshly made rava/suji tosai, whereas I settled for banana leaf meal. In a jiffy, banana leaves were laid and by the time we knew, tosai atop one of the leaves and in the other, a tiny mountain of rice, vegetables sides, papadam, chutneys, pickle and curries. Plus, we also called for a plate of chicken varuval/dry style and fried fried fish/ikan bulus, and teh tarik is always a sheer mouth pleasure for an Indian meal?  Of course if you are asking me. 

Other half-half enjoyed the thin crispy Rava Tosai eaten alongside coconut chutney, tomato chutney and sambar and while at it, he nibbled the fried fish. He basically loved this meal.

What about me and banana leaf meal? Fared quite right. However, chicken varuval was sort of, off-track. Overly salty until I didn't want to eat after the first piece and we also made it known to the waiter who in return spoke to the lady at the counter and later, informing us that nothing is wrong with chicken varuval. Is it? Anyway, we didn't want say anything further and I still wouldn't go ahead and eat.
When it came to paying (RM25.00), we were told we don't have to pay for chicken varuval. Wow! Isn't it great? Of course.

Malaysian Sodhi (Indian Coconut Milk Stew)

Sodhi. Coconut milk infused and laced ( Shrimp Coconut Milk ) Indian coconut stew. In fact, sodhi is the branching of  Masak Lemak ( Vegetarian Malay Spinach Coconut Stew ), or vice-versa or whichever. Sodhi is definitely a popularity amongst the Indians and without a doubt, in my house as well. Sodhi is usually drenched over rice, and eaten alongside side dishes. Trust me, nothing like sodhi soaking or flooding up your rice and then, using your hands for mushy-mushy diving inside eating style. Sodhi. Like, every once a week in my house. In other words, a regularity and it is a dish that can be put up effortlessly. Needless to say, easy cooking and mind you, there are other variances of sodhi too, which I have already shared before ( Malu Kirata , Kiri Hodi , Prawn Sodhi & Cabbage Sodhi ). This latest sodhi? Basically, the humble, basic simplicity, but why a Malaysian Sodhi? Well, Cooked by this “The Crazy Lover” who is a typical, true and true Malaysian, and cooked in her, most o

Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry)

Look at this earthen pot and in it thick, salty, spicy and vibrantly exciting to our palates and eyes  Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry). Like immediately can trigger our hunger throne right? I know. I am definitely a big fan of this Indian style salted fish curry and salted fish on the whole by itself ( Spicy Ikan Bilis Potato , Sambal Tumis Ikan Bilis  &  Sambal Kentang Ikan Asin ), can drive me crazy because I so love saltiness. In fact, every day can be a salted fish meal day for me ( Salted Fish Pickle , Bean Sprouts Salted Fish  & Steamed Pork Salted Fish ). But, I think we all know it? Too much of saltiness and salt can ruin our health? Of course. Then again, there is such a thing as every now and then saltiness as our best friend? How do make this salted fish curry? Nothing much, no major confusing cooking matter ( Salted Fish Bone Curry ). My recipes as always will never cause you to struggle in the kitchen. Ingredients listed below

Restoran Orkid Thai - Section 9, Shah Alam

By the third day, Iphone 7 started showing its dark side. Really a terrifying-horrible shocking discovery, it kept rebooting every now and then for no apparent reason. Obviously, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Duh! Its a brand new phone I paid from  my savings ( Da De Bak Kut Teh Subang Jaya ), never ever have I encountered such a problem with my previous faithfully yours 6 year old Iphone 5. Absolutely heart wracking, I really couldn’t find the time ( Karaikudi Chicken Curry & Fikcles Cafe Taman Tun ) to rush to the service centre amidst the busyness of getting ready for the family wedding and another travel venture ( Oats Fried Prawn s ). Keeping my fingers crossed, hoping it’s just a minor teething problem, I went ahead with shopping nearby Plaza Shah Alam and Plaza Masalam. Accompanied by my niece, we bought a couple of things and then of course, naturally, shopping is more or less regarded as synonymous with hunger throne.
