Let’s go celebrate…

That was what I had in mind when I wanted to go for the nice dim sum here for breakfast after the Easter Sunday church service the other day but it looked like there was quite a crowd there and we went some place else instead. What we had in the end did not turn out to be something out of the ordinary, hardly anything one would go for to celebrate anything for that matter.

Feeling kind of disappointed, I told my girl we would go out for dinner that night and I would let her choose where she wanted to go and what she would like to eat. In the end, she picked one of our favourite places in town

…and of course, she wanted their authentic Indian mutton masala biryani rice (RM21.00)…

She sure enjoyed that and she managed to finish all the rice! She could not finish all the meat in the curry though so I had to help her with a chunk or two.

I also had something from their Indian menu, the tandoori chicken with biryani rice (RM18.00)…

…and it was good. The gravy that came with it went well with the rice and I enjoyed the chicken on its own, not mixed with the gravy or the rice. That way, I could enjoy the subtle flavours of the marinades used to cook the chicken to perfection, nice and tender. I am never a fan of raita though so I just gave what I got by the side to my girl – she loves it a lot and finished all of it in no time at all.

I am quite sure everybody can guess what my missus had – the Indonesian kalio ayam (RM14.50)…

…and as usual, she could only manage one chunk of the chicken. I tried to help her finish the other chunk but she had asked for it to be super extra spicy and it was way too spicy for me. I felt that the over-spiciness drowned out the niceness of the curry so in the end, I just left what was left of the chicken by the side of the plate.

All in all, that was a pleasant dinner, the bill came up to RM67.50 altogether inclusive of drinks, and I was glad that we did get to celebrate Easter, after all,  in a small way.

  1. Other than Thai food and Jap food, Indian Briyani rice is also my favourite. I like both mutton curry or chicken curry.

    My girl will always go for mutton – we have not tried the chicken here. I guess we eat a lot of chicken at home so it will not be our first choice outside.

  2. Though I am not a fan of Indian cuisine, I think what you all had looks great especially the tandoori chicken.

    If you go for North Indian, it is not spicy…but you may not like the exotic spices used in the cooking, so fragrant. To me, anytime better than Chinese, mostly all msg and a lot of oil.

  3. biryani might not be the first thing that comes to mind for an easter meal, but i’ll take it! i guess in malaysia, there’s no fixed menu for easter anyways (except maybe some eggs?) 😀

    Indeed, Easter does not seem to be celebrated as elaborately as some of the other festivals. As far as I know, there are the church services and other than those, they eat hot cross buns…and there’s the Easter bunny and Easter eggs, usually chocolate and people looked forward to the sales on Easter Monday, dunno if it is still the same now.

    But of course, there’s no stopping anyone who would like to celebrate it…in their own way and the typical Malaysian these days will find any reason to celebrate. In the old days, we did not use to celebrate all the Chinese festivals throughout the year – seems that they do now.

  4. Biryani meal for Easter. Now, that’s interesting. Truly Malaysian. I think I will love that extra spicy chicken curry. I love everything extra spicy 😀

    I do too…but not too spicy till you can’t taste the curry.

  5. Wow, your girl can really eat spicy! I cannot eat too spicy, it burns my tongue until everything goes into the mouth do not have any taste any more. 🙂

    Not my girl, the mum. If the mum cooks something extra hot at home, she will get choked by the spiciness and cough non-stop…but the mum will always say no leh, not hot leh! Sigh!!!

  6. Very good food! I would select mutton biryani anytime. And yes, I expected your missus to go for the Kalio Ayam LOL!

    I love the kalio…if only it had not been super-duper extra spicy.

  7. I’m surprised the mutton is a lot cheaper than tandoori chicken.

    The latter is harder to prepare…in a traditional tandoori oven – the authentic Indian chef will cook from scratch so anyone ordering this may have to wait for a while.
