Malgudi Classic Indian Cuisine

If you love to eat classic Indian cuisine, you have got to check out Malgudi Restaurant, Petaling Jaya.   This restaurant serves northern and southern Indian cuisines. The name Malgudi is actually a fictitious town created by R.K. Narayan in his novels and short stories. It went on to capture the imagination of the readers as a real town in the south of India. The caricature was created by his brother R.K. Laxman to fortify these memories in the minds of the readers. 

When I was here, I tried the Seval Combo which is deep fried onions, bitter gourd and cauliflower. This was very crispy, not that spicy and was a great appetizer.

Seval Combo (Deep Fried Fritters) - RM 16

The Nasi Lemak Briyani is a very special and delicious dish which is only available from 31 August  to 16 September 2017 in conjuction with Merdeka and Malaysia Day.  The traditional coconut milk rice is replaced with specialty biryani rice cooked in coconut milk served with sambal, cucumber, fried anchovies, peanuts, topped with an egg and a scrumptious Malgudi fried chicken. The Malgudi fried chicken meat was so tender and very tasty. The sambal was spicy and the briyani rice was not dry and very delicious. 
Nasi Lemak Briyani - RM 19.50, Fresh Lime Juice - 5.00

For dessert, I had Kulfi which is a popular frozen dairy dessert from the Indian subcontinent flavored milk saffron with nuts served and cow's milk. It was sweet and tasted like special ice-cream. I really liked this.

Kulfi - RM 7.50

Besides the food I have tried, there are lots of other Northern and Southern Indian cuisines served here. Do come and taste the food yourself.
