Sri Ganapathi Mess (Seksyen 1, Petaling Jaya)

The mess! I love the mess. The hand messing to a banana leaf meal. Trust me, nothing is more profound when you mess your hands into a, the or your banana, ooops, no, should be, your banana leaf meal. Simply said, banana leaf meal and hands. They jive, they dance and they are in tandem for a delightful wholesome banana leaf meal. Of course, you have a choice to using fork and spoon, but, for an Indian like me. My hands must lead the way, my hands must show the way. Having said that, lets not forget one thing. Mannerism. Whether its a banana leaf meal or not, and I for once, can't stand those who make hell of a noise when eating, plus, have you noticed the ugly eaters? Damn. What an ugly sight. Especially for a banana leaf meal. Can't understand. I just can't understand how food can spill out of the banana leaf and leaving the bones and what not on the table after eating. So gross right? I know.

The other I must mention. About the word mess. When the word mess is included in the name of an Indian eatery. Me interpreting the mess as - an unassuming basic eatery, and where I can expect home style cooking to home style dishes. Sri Ganapathi Mess. Indeed. As I have already said. In other words, a simplified dining area and indeed, home style typical traditional Indian dishes.

We walking in, the three of us, into Sri Ganapathi Mess at about, before the clock has struck twelve noon and. Oh-mamma-mia. What a scene. The scene to busyness of customers eating and the  busyness of the staff to serving. The "Amma", the elderly lady, I'm assuming, I may be wrong, I think the owner, who was at the outside dining area. She, my-my, she smiled, she greeted and she gestured  Nava K, the modern trendy "My Fifty Five Life" Indian lady to the inside dining area. Oh-lalaalala! The Indian sentiment in me. So touched deepest down, until, my Indian sentiment ran as high and round and round the tree, like in Tamil movies.

What can you expect for your banana leaf lunch in Sri Ganapathi Mess? Anything special? Anything outstanding? Not really. Those fried stuffs, those curries, those side dishes, rasam and papadam. As in other Indian eateries which trend similar banana leaf eating concept.

What did we tucked into? The extra dishes we called for, besides the standard side dishes, curries and rice you get for a banana leaf meal?

We ordered like Indian pigs by going over the board. We ordered Fried Black Pompret, we ordered Fried Prawns, atop and surrounded by crispy fried onion, we ordered Mutton Curry, we ordered Goat Intestine Curry, and we ordered Fried Cauliflower. Way too much until I had to pack back the fried fish and goat intestine curry.

Were we overwhelmed by the tastiness of the dishes at the end of our meal? Mmmmmm!!! Without a doubt, a decent, satisfying and appreciated meal. However. Honestly. Nothing out of the blues. Nothing really outstanding until I am like, do or die, dying for returning to Sri Ganapathi Mess again. Price-wise. How much did we pay? Around RM85.00. What about service? In all fairness, rated as effective and efficient.  Parking? Well, tell me. Where is parking a great deal these days. Furthermore, when an eatery like Sri Ganapathi Mess is located within a housing area. Do your blind parking and you would have done fine.

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.
