Recently we did a bit of exploring around the Sri Hartamas area which gets forgotten most of the time for the flashier Desa Sri Hartamas outlets. Lots of changes around there - a branch of the Bakery from Ampang is opened there and it looks like Salero Negori is also set to open a new outlet there as they're currently doing renovations. Am also surprised to see Han Chon, the Korean fried chicken place still open.
We eventually ended up at this place called Yatra which serves Indian food. Although their specialty is banana leaf rice, we ordered different items. I had their Palakad Mutton Briyani set (RM8.50) which was served in an interesting way as seen above. The mutton pieces are buried under the rice hence you don't see them. Pretty good stuff and not oily. I read that it's cooked with yoghurt making a healthier. The mutton was quite hot and spicy that I had to eat quite a bit of cucumbers to cool down my tongue. The small side dishes were dhall, curries, achar, cucumbers in yoghurt and onions with chopped green onions.
Something unusual they have on their menu are their wraps - they have them for chicken tikka, mutton and even paneer (vegetarian cheese). Splashie Boy had the Chicken Tikka Wrap (RM6) which was yummy and filled with chicken tikka and shredded cucumbers. This came with a mint sauce on the side. Makes a nice light meal especially for lunch time when you don't want to eat too much.
We also spied other interesting items on their menu like sweet appam, appam, pani puri, thali sets for puri, chapati and etc hence we will definitely be back to try the other items.

(Open from 7.30 am to 10.30 pm daily. If coming from PJ, you will hit the traffic light before the turn off to Desa Sri Hartamas, turn right instead and drive straight. At the junction, take a right and drive straight until you see a row of shophouses, turn left and you will see Yatra on the right hand side.)
