Muthu's curry (18th Oct 2008)

Last shot for the Canon marathon ... we decided to go for India food... @ Muthu's... ain't the best place... but... we are not VERY choosey... :) It's Indian food... and a restaurant that's catered to the tourists...

To start with... we are given a banana leaf on a tray with a wet napkin, fork and spoon..

I love these Indian crackers ... Pappadam. Love it! just like prawn crackers except its rather tastless and need some forms of sauce .. which I would prefer my cottage cheese mixed with spinach gravy. :)~

Biryani Rice - Basmati rice cooked with vegetables, cashew nuts and saffron

Plain and Garlic Naan - it's like bread... :) Usually I would take some... but I had too much from lunch... so I rather save my tummy space for the biryani rice.

Palak Paneer - cottage cheese mixed with spinach gravy.
Out of all the indian food, north and south (not that I know the differences... ) I think this is my favorite favorite dish. I like cheese, i like spinach in their beyond recognizable state... :P~ I can eat this with rice, naan, Pappadam, Chapati or on its own.

I had tried a mutton with spinach gravy before too :D pity they are no longer making this... cause they think that it was too much work.

Binjal Masala - Aubergine cooked in a spicy curry with a tinch of sweet and sour
Aubergine, binjal or eggplant... they don't look the same... but they sort of taste the same to me. but I didn't like this dish or rather the way they had cooked it. I don't really like sourish curries.

Black Daal - Kidney beans and black lentils cooked with cummin and home churned butter
I had a very good Daal once... but this was not as good. But after mixing it with my palak paneer and some briyani rice... it tasted quite good.

Tandoori Mushrooms - Crunchy mushrooms marinated in a mix of spices and cooked in tandoor.
The frist time I tried this, it was good. But as the number of tries increased... the food get worse and worse and worse and it became worst! I don't think I will ever go for this dish again. *disappointed*

Mutton Curry - Mutton in a thick gravy made from ginger, garlic and spices
I like I like I like mutton.... but I was too full to appreciate it... :( shucks.
But this is quite good! with some tendons and some fats and spicy :D

Lastly... dining partners want a Masala Tea... I don't drink this.. cause I don't like my tea with ginger or spices... I like my tea plain with milk and sugar without ginger or spices, thank you.

Indian mouth Freshener... just something to cleanse the mouth

There are plenty of indian food in Singapore... this might be a good place to bring tourists... and a clean place too... but then I don't think it's the one for me.
