Budget Indian Food

I love discovering new places and it amazes me some times, how much good food there is out there. Although ss3 in Petaling Jaya is not as glamorous as it's next door neighbour, ss2 which now seems to be packed with Hong Kong cafes for the yuppies, they get their fair share of customers due to their proximity to the factories. Food is always good around the area and cheaper than ss2. During lunch time, the little area is packed with people who flood there to eat at the Chinese and Indian places.

My cousin who lives in ss3, recommended this place to us and it is ideal when you are feeling a bit skint just before your paycheck arrives at the end of the month. It ain't as glamorous as the banana leaf restaurants that charge you an arm and a leg as they serve simple food. Lunch is served from 11.3o am onwards and you choose what you want from a row of metal pots filled with all sorts of vegetables; potatoes, green beans, chinese cabbage, spinach, dhall and etc.

They charge you according to what you take just like the economy rice outlets, but it ranges from RM4.50 to RM5.00. Here you have the essential fried items like fried fish and chicken.

I love the curry mutton here, very nice and tender. Unfortunately I was a bit too early for it so I chose a different curry.

I had a choice of three vegetables and a bit of chicken leg curry plus some crunchy poppadums with a glass of teh tarik (Malay for hot pulled tea) and it all cost me RM5 only!

You see a stream of people coming to pack up curries including Indian housewives with their containers. They also serve breakfast like thosai and chapati in the morning.

Stall No. 5
Selera Wawasan ss3/33
Along Jalan ss3/33
(Go on Jalan ss 3/64 and go all the way down, turn right just before the 7-11 at where the Buddhist worship centre is. The food court is on the right hand side.)
They are closed for a few days for Deepavali starting today.

Thanks, Boo, for the photos and the slice of life you have kindly served up.:)
I don't know much at all about Malaysian foods and I see now I'm going to have to read more of your blog to learn.
For example, I recently wrote a post in my Indian-spice blog about the meaning of 'curry' and how its meaning changes depending on where you're from.
How might one describe a Malaysian curry as opposed to an Indian one??

boo_licious said...

Courtney - that is a tough one. How to describe a curry. Msian curries esp the Indian ones are Southern Indian style so lots of coconut milk used.
