Savoury Sunday

Last Sunday, we explored the savoury and sweet tastes of Indian/Punjabi food at Lotus Family Restaurant in Petaling Jaya. The Petaling Jaya suburbs especially the Old Town section is peppered with Indian restaurants serving banana leaf rice during lunch time but this is the only place we know that serves Bhatura. After searching through the Internet, I understand the Bhatura is a Punjabi snack. Essentially it is a deep fried unleavened bread made from unbleached white flour and yoghurt. If you want to make this at home, have a look at these curry addicts' website as they give detailed instructions on how to make it. There is also a step by step video.

Both of us had the Bhatura with some dry chicken curry and vegetable kurma. There was so few vegetables in the kurma that it looked more like kurma sauce only. The chicken was also nothing great. Bit dry and not much flavour to it. Sorry about the slightly dark pictures as the place was quite dim.
