Nirvana Banana Leaf Rice, Bangsar
There's alwiz something comforting about Banana Leaf Rice, isn't it?
Last Saturday, Monkey woke up craving for one :P and off we went to Bangsar for it.
Many of my friends boycotted this place - Nirvana for its pricey food. Dunno why I've returned over and over again, time after time.....they must have inserted cocaine into their curries for my occasional returns and addiction. :P
Dried Mutton Curry was succulent, each piece tears apart easily...
Hot Mama Thevi told me they served the best Mutton Fried Rice here but I have yet to have the opportunity to try. Coz whenever we are here during the day, it's Banana Leaf Rice...and at nite after clubbing it's usually Thosai with Ghee!!!! hahahahaha Yes I need all those greasy food to sober me up.
Deep fried fresh squid, served with crunchy curry leaves, dried chilis and freshly cut red onions. Squeeze some lime over it and woilaaaaaa...so so so sinful and yummy. This was fried on the spot fresh for u.
Usually Banana Leaf Rice is served with a few condiments of vegetables
seen here are the fried bitter gourd, spinach cooked in dhal, fresh cucumber yogurt salad.
also 2 pieces of deep fried chili stuffed with sea salt, and a sour condiments of green beans.
a heap of par boiled rice, before being drizzled with gravy of your choice. Traditionally only vegetarian gravy were served bcoz banana leaf rice is meant to be a vegetarian dish. But these days, it's such a luxury to eat them, u'll have crab curry, meat curry, seafood and all~~~~
Now I am looking forward to try another good place recommended by friends at Appu's...need to find time this weekend but again I will be away. My home will definitely miss me :))))))))
