Flour, Bukit Damansara

With so many Indian restaurants in Klang Valley, I thought I knew enough about Indian cuisine. But I was so very wrong. Apparently, what Malaysians know about Indian food is barely the tip of the surface, as I soon learnt when I stepped into Flour in Bukit Damansara.

By noon, Flour is packed with customers. This was taken at 11.30am when they just opened for business.

At Flour, don’t expect to see butter chicken or palak paneer. Instead, immerse yourself into the details of the menu, which I found very enjoyable and informational. Jien and I visited them twice and on both occasions, our visits were relatively pleasant.

Lasooni Gosht

Lasooni Gosht

Lasooni Gosht (RM31) is said to be one of Flour’s must-try mutton dishes where the meat is cooked in spiced garlic curry for hours until tender. It was aromatic and moderately spicy, with plenty of flavour from the garlic and spices which veiled the gaminess of the mutton.

Served with Kulcha

We had this with Kulcha (RM8), an eggless Indian flatbread with coriander and sesame. I found the combination pretty good as you get that flaky, light texture from the kulcha which goes well with the rich notes of the curry.

Served with Tandoori Roti

On our second visit, I opted for the Laal Maans (RM31) which Jien’s colleague from India said was a popular dish back in his home country. This mutton curry is prepared using yogurt, ghee and chillies, which is ideal for those who likes a good kick in their curries. Both mutton curries were delicious in their own right but I liked the Lasooni Gosht a wee bit better.

Dhingri Masala

Dhingri Masala with Pudina Laccha

I liked the Dhingri Masala (RM24), a hot and appetising vegetable dish of mushroom cooked in thick curry. The dish has a subtle sweetness and creamy mouthfeel – delicious with Pudina Laccha (RM8), a multi-layered Indian paratha made using whole wheat flour and dotted with mint for aroma and flavour.

Eaten with Laccha

In place of paneer with spinach, I ordered the Paneer Nimbu Do Pyaza (RM24) at Flour, said to represent a vegetarian version of butter chicken. This curry comprises cubes of cottage cheese in creamy onion gravy with a twist of lime for a bit of zing. This I had with plain laccha (RM6) which mopped up the curry well.

Mutton Briyani

The mutton briyani at Flour is by far one of the best I’ve tasted and according to some of our Indian friends, the smell and flavour of the briyani “takes them back to India”. I can’t vouch for that statement but the briyani is delicious – fluffy, nicely flavoured and the mutton pieces, tender and well-seasoned.

Batata Fritters

P1400069

During our first visit, I bumped into a friend who told me I must try their Batata Fritters (RM12) said to be a popular snack in Mumbai. This tasted like a cross of curry puff and masala dosai for me. If you’re into either of them, you’ll like the fritters too.

I find portions quite small so if you’re planning to share, you’ll need to order more curries. Expect to pay between RM35-50 per head, including a drink. If you’re planning do go during dinner time, I suggest you call ahead to reserve a table as they’re often fully booked.
