Sri Grand City Restaurant (Section 11) Petaling Jaya

Akin Sri PaandiSri Grand City is another legend. Legend in the sense that it has been in this area for the longest time and can be considered as our favourite restaurant as well. Usually, Sri Grand City is our choice when catching up with friends for tea break, over the spread of goodies like vadai, karipap, kuih-muih etc etc. Or we pop by for a banana leaf lunch. But over the years, once our tide diverted because we uprooted our roots to reside in Shah Alam, I know we can still drive to Sri Grand City, but for some reason or rather, we chose not to. Don't ask me why, I really can't nail why.

On this Sunday, I was suppose to cook but considering that I was not up to mark, my beloved imperfect soul-mate felt sentimental and emotional. He wanted me to break-away from rolling the pots and pans, we came over to Sri Grand City. Walking in, there was hardly any breather. I mean, almost all the tables occupied. Peak lunch time. What do you expect? By chance, by fluke shot as I would like to say, we spotted any empty table. The moment we sat, we were attended to immediately. Pretty much straightforward, lunch opened up with banana leaf laid in front of us, followed by serving of rice, curries and veggies of the day, rasam, chutneys, pickle, moor mullagai/yogurt chillies, rasam and papadam.

I vouch, I will, I must actually, food is still delicious as ever. Undoubtedly. Spicy finger licking condiments and the "tanni saar"/lentil-leafy green veg, runny curry, outshining the other curries. By far, this banana leaf meal is hearty enough, we shouldn't by right, have ordered the two side dishes. Then again, waste not what not. Mutton curry must be danged! Soft tender mutton pieces in a thick, spicy and truly flavorful gravy. Ohlalala! We definitely loved it to its core, fish cutlet was equally yummy too. Fried to utmost crispiness with a soft bite inside.
As full as I was, I didn't want to waste the payasam. Slightly over sweet, yet a splendid ending to this  spicy meal, washed down with the fresh sweet-tangy mango lassi.

Sri Grand City is still a legend. Still standing tall and proud as one of the eateries which delivers delicious Indian food.

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.
