Lunch with the mom-in-law. I ordered fried tofu, steamed broccoli and noodles with greens and soy sauce.
Later at the grocery store, jackfruit in the flesh!
Raju is a popular chain of banana leaf restaurants that serve delicious Southern Indian food AND roti canai. Here is our server, dishing up the various curries.
Tofu with onions and spicy chili sauce. GAWDDDD it’s good!
Roti Canai, flooded with lentil dhal and a side of pickled cabbage, beet and coconut sambal. Coconut sambal is a spicy, savory coconut dip / sauce that is served on the side, along with other curry sauces and dhal.
Video we took of roti canai being born.
There is nothing, and I mean, nothing, like drinking a cold coconut on a hot day, right after you eat spicy food. Pure bliss.
Sometimes fruit and cereal hits the perfect dinner spot. Pear, mango, jackfruit and cereal with soy milk.
Curry puff with a side of purple carrots, celery and red peppers, dipped in hummus.
I can’t do a post about Malaysia without bringing up cendol.
Cendol (pronounced “chendal”) is a cold dessert, made up of shaved ice, coconut milk, worm-shaped pandan flavored rice jelly bits, melted palm sugar and black beans. I’m not a fan of the black beans but the rest is awesome.
Banana leaf in Little India in KL. I don’t even know what all was on my leaf but it was all plant based and I enjoyed every spicy second of it.
