FLOUR Restaurant @ Damansara Heights: North Indian Food
Malaysia is a multi-cultural country and is no surprise that the country is considered as a food heaven for many foodies. Among all of the delicacies available in our country, Indian food is one of my favourite cuisines. I love the aromatic spices of Indian food, and for me, these are my kind of comfort food.
If you enjoy these heavenly-spiced dishes, let me take you on a gourmet trip to FLOUR Restaurant - a place where you'll get authentic North Indian food.
FLOUR was founded by a couple in love - a chef from India and a pretty lady in Malaysia. The restaurant has only been operating for less than 2 months, but it is so well-received that the place is always full house. We were there when they were about to close for their lunch break, but the restaurant was crowded and we were lucky to have reserve a table beforehand.
The interior is cosy and I especially like the sofas area.
Lasooni Ghost (Mutton Curry) with Kulcha (Sesame Roti) (RM 20). The mutton was super-duper extremely tender; and the gravy was rich, thick and aromatic! We couldn't help but to wipe up every drop of the gravy with the freshly-made sesame roti.
Murgh Makhani (Butter Chicken) with Puri (RM 18). Chicken pieces marinated for several hours, barbequed in tandoor and served in mildly spiced tomato curry. Every bite was an explosion of flavours, and I like the acidity that the tomato added to the rich curry.
Ajwaini Baingan with Laccha (RM 15). Brinjal cooked with Ajwain based spicy brown curry. You might be surprised to know that North Indian cuisine consist of a lot of vegetarian dishes. When it comes to vegetarian food, these people really know what they are doing. Instead of using local brinjals, they imported theirs from India to keep the authenticity of the dish.
Maa Ki Dal with Jeera Rice (RM 15). If you think this Dal is the ones that you'll usually have in mamak, you are wrong! This was so much flavourful and goes extremely well with the rice.
Mutton Biryani (RM 20). If you love biryani, THIS IS A MUST HAVE!!!!!!!! The rice was fluffy, mutton was tender and I just can't get over the spices. No wonder the biryani is one of the restaurant's best-sellers.
Thali by Maharaj (Veg) (RM 15). Thali is an Indian-style meal that consist a selection of various dishes served on a platter. Served with a variety of vegetables, home-made yogurt, white rice and roti; thali is perfect for those who want to try a little bit of everything. Apart from vegetarian option, FLOUR offers their thali with choices of chicken or mutton too.
Mango Lassi (RM 8). I'm never a fan of lassi. I never could understand what's so great about this drink... until I tried the mango lassi from FLOUR. Trust me when I said this the best lassi I've ever had. Without any added sugar, they only uses pure mango and home-made lassi to produce the lassi. It was thick and fruity. Absolutely a must have at FLOUR!
During our visit at FLOUR, we had the chance to talk to the chef for a bit. To keep the integrity and authenticity of their food, they insist to import the ingredients from India as well as custom-made certain equipment to prepare their food. Throughout the conversation with the chef, I could feel his passion for food.
FLOUR is still going through a soft launch period and they are still making some slight amendments. I'm looking forward towards their official launch and what other delicacies they will be serving at the restaurant.
A friendly reminder, do make reservation before dropping by if you do not want to be disappointed.
