Tiger Jit Singh Chapati, Jalan San Peng

One of the perks about living in Malaysia is the exposure to different types of cuisines. Punjabi food is something I rarely get to enjoy, ever since I left high school and lost touch with a few of my Punjabi peers. I was recently re-introduced to this cuisine when my colleagues and I visited Tiger Jit Singh Chapati, located along the row of stalls in Jalan San Peng.

Assorted curries

The cuisine is enriched with yogurt or ghee (clarified butter) and seasoned with an assortment of spices such as saffron, methi, coriander, cardamom and star anise – only these few I can identify. The chapatti (RM1.50 per piece) is made to order, ensuring every piece is fresh, fluffy and with just the right pull. With so many exciting side dishes available, one piece is never enough.

Stuffed bittergourd

A must try here is the stuffed bitter gourd (RM2 per piece), a house special that runs out pretty fast. It looks unassuming but the flavours are superbly complex from the spices and yoghurt – creamy, slightly tangy and fiery at the end of the bite. I don’t know how else to describe this, but I love it.

Mutton bone curry

The mutton curry (RM6) is one of my favourite items at Tiger Jit Singh; thick and flavour packed with a sneaky heat that creeps up on you. Skip the mutton bone version as this was tough and difficult to eat. Then there’s the chicken curry (RM5) that is equally as tasty and packed more wallop if you dare attempt drowning your chapati with the gravy.

I wanted to order more but Tiger Jit told me to hold off ordering, in case we wouldn’t be able to finish all the food. How wrong he was. We added a plate of spinach puree and fried spinach with chicken, and he treated us to a small plate of pakoras. We left no gravy behind. 😀

Daily specials

On our subsequent visits, we stuck to our favourites but also added in the fish curry and sardine curry for variety. Tiger Jit Singh serves tea with fresh cow’s milk (RM2) so if you’re up for it, give this a go. I don’t claim to be an expert in Indian cuisine, but from what I remember (eating at the homes of my Punjabi peers), this is good stuff.

Chapati is made to order here

Pricing really depends on how much you order. For my lunch buddies and I, it ranges between RM15-20 per pax because we always go all out. You can definitely get by with less than RM10 here. I’ve been wanting to blog about this place but decided to hold off a bit so I can enjoy the food here a bit more without the place being overly crowded.

These days, I can’t even get a seat at Prasad’s banana leaf rice and my colleagues are mad at me for revealing their secret joint hahaha! 😛 If you love a good chapati meal, this is a good place to check out. I now prefer this to my previous regular joint, Santa Chapati.
