Indian Kitchen Restaurant, Cyberjaya

>> Tuesday, February 9, 2010

Date: 5 February 2010, Friday
Venue: Indian Kitchen Restaurant, Cyberjaya
Occasion: Project team lunch
Overall comment: Taste of the food was actually quite impressive. The place is clean, environment is quite comfortable & cosy, but the price of the food is slightly above average. On the overall, it's worth eating & treating yourself once in a while for some decent Indian food, especially when you're in the area of Cyberjaya - a concrete jungle.


The Restaurant



The Menu

Our Main Menu (RM229.00 nett for 8-10 persons)
Here's what our boss ordered for us. The portions were quite sufficient to feed 10 of us...or maybe more, since I don't think the rest of the team members who came later ordered anything! We just hopped onto ONE set! *fuh*

Other Value Set Meals
Their value meals aren't VERY 'value meals'. If it's a meal below RM10.00, then I'll call it a 'value meal'! Hahaha...but I guess with Indian food, the price is around this range, especially if it's some 'authentic' Indian food filled with spices.

Ala Carte Food & Drinks Menu
Drinks: Price ranges from RM1.50 - RM4.00
Food: Price ranges from RM5.00 - RM12.00

The People

The Drinks & Food

Colorful Drinks
L->R: Mango lassi (RM5.00), fresh orange juice (RM4.00), sweet lassi with some salt (RM4.00), fresh mango juice (RM4.00), ginger mint lassi (RM5.00), watermelon juice (RM4.00).
[Ruth] I had the mango lassi, a highly recommended drink by some colleagues who have eaten here before. The lassi is smooth & the mango flavor is rather evident. The nicest thing is that eventhough it's a blend of pure lassi with fresh mango, there are no fibre bits in the drink that could get stuck in between your teeth...hahaha...the drink is thick, sweet, & sourish.

Hot Masala Tea (RM4.00)
If you fancy a hot mug of "teh tarik" (pulled tea) with some masala spices, this is something for you!
[Ruth] I don't really enjoy such a beverage. I find it slightly strange to have fragrant tea mixed with pungent spices. I reckon it's an acquired taste, but if you're adventurous, give this tea a try ;)

Gobi Manchurian
This is originally a Chinese dish that has been localized by Indian restaurants to satisfy the taste buds of Indians who long for something spicy along with cocktails or before a big meal. This dish can be served as an appetizer or a dry side dish itself. - taken from here
[Ruth] I enjoyed this dish, no doubt. It's basically fried cauliflower (gobi) in batter cooked in sweet & sour sauce. You'll find a simple recipe of this dish here.

Chicken Pakkora
Chicken Pakora is one of the most popular Indian dishes not only in India but also other parts of the world. Chicken pakora is a traditional starter dish, but it can be served as a main meal. - taken from here
[Ruth] This reminded me of tempura chicken with vegetables. The only difference is that Chicken Pakkora's batter has added Indian spices. I thought this was quite a nice dish. If you enjoy fried food, something crispy, or just a different cooking-style for chicken, this may appeal to you :) You'll find a simple recipe of this dish here.

Tandoori Chicken
This was not part of the set menu. The taste of the tandoori chicken is not too bad, actually. The meat was nicely flavored & it wasn't too rough/tough.

Vegetable Soup
Part of the set meal, this soup is alike the Malay-style's soup soto ayam without the ayam....hahaha... I didn't quite enjoy this dish. There were chopped cabbage, onions, spring onions, carrots, & parsley with much Indian spices. I felt that the soup tasted strange, probably over-powered by the pungent spices. I reckon it's an acquired taste after all.

Egg Burji
Egg Bhurji or Egg khagina (as it is known in Pakistan), is a dish popular in north and western India. Its preparation and appearance are similar to scrambled eggs. The difference lies in the addition of sauteed chopped onions, chilies, and optional spices. - taken from here.
[Ruth] I find this dish rather 'common' in taste & cooking-style. I personally feel that it goes better with rice than with chapati.

Prawn Pepper Fry
The name of this dish speaks for itself. With some curry powder, some Indian spices, & some fresh medium-sized prawns, this dish is a "crowd-pleaser", especially to adults & to those who love spicy food.

Butter Chicken Masala
The gravy goes VERY well with chapati or rice! I love this dish, especially the gravy :) The chicken resembles the tandoori chicken, but it's served in thick, mildly spicy, buttery gravy! *yums* You'll find a sample of the butter chicken masala recipe here.

Mutton Hydrabadi
Hyderabadi cuisine is a princely legacy of the Nizams of Hyderabad. Hyderabad, a city created by the Nawabs of Golconda, has developed its own cuisine over the centuries. It is a blend of Mughlai and North Indian cuisine, with an influence of the spices and herbs of the native Telugu food. The cuisine is special because of the use ingredients that are carefully chosen and cooked to the right degree and time. Utmost attention is given to picking the right kind of spices, meat, rice etc. - taken from here.
[Ruth] At first glance, I thought this dish looks rather disgusting. The color itself wasn't appetizing to begin with! I mean, who would be drawn to a 'dirty-green' colored dish with pieces of meat 'swimming' in it? I, for one, wasn't interested in this dish at first. But being a 'food blogger' somehow made me push myself to try any food, even if it was just a small mouthful. Ah, if you're a mutton-lover & you're inspired by Popeye the Sailorman, you'll not want to miss this! The gravy is made of mashed/blended spinach & spices, making it thick & smooth too! The mutton isn't much to shout about, but it goes pretty well with such a gravy :) Coming to think of it, this dish is actually a "princely" dish originating from Hyderabad! *fuh*

Mushroom Pepper Masala (RM10.00/serving)
One of my Indian colleagues who was vegetarian that day, ordered this dish & oh, being a mushroom-freak, I instantly feel in love with this dish, even before tasting it! The word "mushroom" itself made me give this dish an instant 7 points out of 10! *lol* You'll find oyster mushrooms stir-fried with onions, spring onions, pepper, & Indian spices. It looks like a very simple dish, but I loved it nonetheless :)

If you're in the area of Cyberjaya, this is no doubt one place I would recommend!
