It’s been a while since I’ve been to the Punjab Sweets Restaurant. I love Punjabi food, and this was a restaurant I visited several times during my father’s stay at Sentosa Hospital earlier this year.
I don’t actually go to the restaurant to buy the sweets, but just to have a yummy meal of chapati, although I have tried the gulab jamun (yummy). I usually order chapati and eat it with dhal and other vegetarian dishes … such as aloo gobi (potato & cauliflower), chickpeas with gravy….
The restaurant is not a vegetarian restaurant, but they do have quite a few vegetarian dishes to go along with the chapati. You can also ask for aloo purota instead of chapati. I would describe purota as chapati’s older, oilier brother (made with ghee). Aloo means potato, so an aloo purota is a purota made with potato filling.
And of course, I always order a plate of plain yoghurt, known as dahi.
The vegetarian food here is cheap, and the food is tasty. Unfortunately, my father is currently in the hospital again. My mother and I went to the restaurant for a late lunch yesterday… this is what my mother had:
Like my mother, I had a chapati along with dhal and the chickpeas with gravy, but I did not select the ladies finger (bendi) curry. Instead, I had aloo gobi. The total bill, which comprised: two sets of chapati (with dhall + 2 dishes each) + two cups of teh tarik + one plate of yoghurt = RM 7.40.
Yup, you read it right. Only RM 7.40. Where else can you get such a satisfying meal, at such a low price?
I suggest going there at lunch time, at perhaps around 12 noon. If you go late, some of the dishes would most likely be finished.
