I am a big fan of Indian breakfast, really. All the type of bread and curries. Yumm... It's just so different from the usual cereals, toasted bread, eggs... Anyways. I was in KL for a couple of days' break. My sister took me out for makan pagi (breakfast). And now, I would love to share with you my breakfast.
It was a rainy Sunday morning, cooling and calm. I just loved this day so much. We headed to this Indian restaurant in Bangsar, which I believe is one of the popular Banana Leaf restaurant here. Parking can be a hassle around Bangsar, but during the morning, it is not too bad. The restaurant is directly opposite the Bangsar Shopping Village. You can hardly miss it, as it always very crowded with people and, we had to wait for a table as it was fully packed.
I love tosai, and so I ordered the Masala Tosai, crispy tosai with a chunky vegetarian filling of potatoes, green beans, mixed vege and more. Interesting the way it is actually wrapped, as the wrapping acts like a pouch to contain the warmth of the food while you slowly eat it. Tosai is a Souh Indian type of crepe, normally eaten for breakfast or dinner. It's also usually served with at least 3 types of curry dipping. Very flavourful... Look at the filling closely... so nice, warm and tasty I am suddenly, instantly awakened!
This is what I love most about Indian food - they serve you with this cute curry pots that u just mix all the curry together. Usually with dhal, coconut, chicken curry, and others. I love them all. and this is what I normally do: Just pour them on to my masla tosai, and enjoy the taste...
This can be a little spicy sometimes, with the dried chilli being one of the ingredients used. I love my food being spicy and savoury tho. All of us loved the tosai here.
Puri, is a very puffy type of bread also originates from India. This is deep fried bread, really, and very crispy. My nephew loves it. The puri here at Nirwana Maju is good, as evidenced in the picture. Served on banana leaf, with potato-dhal like below.
I have been very busy with many events lately, that I have no time to cook nice foods and blog about it... especially when my mother tends to do almost everything... but, I'll be back with more of my home cook foods! Till then, do enjoy my little food outings! :-)
