One fine Sunday night, I suddenly had the mood for lamb curry. I didn’t know why, but it was just so specific – lamb curry, that was it. I was reminiscing the heavenly Rogan Gosht that I had back in Sagar, but Saucer suggested something closer to home, and kinder to the wallet. 🙂 That was how we ended up at Kanna Curry House. Both of us ordered Banana Leaf Rice and we were given the buckets of gravy filled with chicken curry, fish curry and dhal.

What I love about Kanna Curry House was how generous they were with all the side dishes and the curry! The buckets of curry above never left our table the whole time! It was a sign from them telling us that we could have as much of them as we wanted. Also, every once in a while, someone would come over and ask us if we needed anything – rice? Vegetables? Meat? Basically, just are we good? For RM4.50, this was an exceptional deal!

There were 4 types of side dishes given – acar, cabbage, cucumber and papadam. Oh don’t forget the complimentary rassam (soup) too! And yes, they’re all refillable.

Of course, how could we forget the real reason we were there? Lamb curry! We ordered a plate of that, and even though it looked small, there were loads of lamb in it! Definitely a portion for sharing! The lamb was amazingly tender and tasty! There was definitely no gamey smell, and the curry was not overly spicy, but distinguishable from the rest of the curries on my rice. I kept having one piece after another, for it was just delicious!

Outside the restaurant, there was a frying area with a counter filled with marinated raw meat. I loved the idea of having freshly fried items upon order, unlike most restaurants where their fried items are all cooked and placed on trays. Here, the customer could go to the counter and pinpoint exactly which piece of meat he wants to be fried and it will be fried only upon order. This guarantees freshness and hygiene.

Happily frying meat!
Since it was quite late when we were there (around 8-9pm), there was quite limited meat left. By limited, I meant there were only chicken wings! I’m definitely not a fan of chicken wings, more of a chicken thigh person but since chicken wings were the only part left, I ordered a piece. It came out to be pretty fragrant, alas a tad too dry for my liking.

Banana leaf rice experience wouldn’t be complete with a glass of mango lassi, in my humble opinion. It balances out the spiciness on your tongue as well as your stomach at the end of the meal. Even looking at my picture now is getting my stomach growling. *LOL*
Wholesome banana leaf rice
Drooling yet? 🙂
I used to eat Banana Leaf rice only during lunch, but eating it for dinner is quite a nice change too! For starters, I didn’t have to deal with the afternoon scorching sun and I didn’t have to go back to the office all sweaty and smelling of curry! 😛 Definitely coming back here again if only for that lamb curry! 🙂
