Healthy Punjab Food In Lahat Road, Ipoh

Once awhile, I like to go for Indian cuisine, not the heavy type of meal but the kind of healthy typewhere there is less oil or preferably oil-less.... 

It was on a one fine  and hot day when my colleague suggested going for a capati in old town.... I readily agreed, once awhile it is nice for a change to try different culture food and I was expecting the same shop that we normally go to.... But no, this time he took me to this Punjab shop here along Lahat Road here in Ipoh.
 Restoran Moga Punjab....
Just look at the vegetables... I was already salivating then... 
I love all types of greens especially they are cooked fresh and different from what I normally do...
Cauliflower cooked with chilli powder?
When I saw ladies fingers or okra, I told myself that I must order this!
My colleague told me that they do the capati there and then too...
Fresh from the pan....!
Knead, knead... then.... 
Rolling pin in action.....
And there... my two capati-s!
Ordered a small plate of okra....crunchy and fresh....
And spicy brinjals aka eggplants cooked differently....
I would love it better if they put some tomatoes to make it sweet and sour.. right?
But then this is a Punjab meal... not Reanaclaire's....
Ta.....daaaaa...
Fresh Capati from the pan.....
Healthy Oil-less Capati!

  2. All the food looks very spicy. Seldom take Indian food except the roti canai. Punjabi capati looks cripsy.

    2. hahahaa... maybe he mistaken naan for capati! Or perhaps his favorite is naan.. hehehe.. never mind, I am also blur at times.. or should I say, many times! Naan is a bit tougher... capati if fresh is very soft...

  4. eh, Chapati.. i don't think i have ever eaten a Chapati before though i have heard this a million of times!! but then the ladies fingers surely not my pick lah, i don't eat that, don't like that slimy slimy texture.. maybe i'll just go with the plain Dhaal lah, cos frankly, those veggie really don't seem appealing to me, hahahahaha!! ooopsss but i cannot just say yummy yummy to your food every time right?? :p

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
