Delicious smells waft from this Punjabi restaurant serving the usual ethnic fare, where all their breads are made to order. There is no scenic view or alfresco dining but the décor in Big Singh Chapatti is delightful and comfortable. Their attraction, their bread of course are complemented by a symphony of flavours and cooking styles of dishes from homely dhal to grilled meats and biryani rice worthy of the waiting time. Cheese Prontha (RM 6.90), Onion Prontha (RM 5), Cheese Naan (RM 10), Parotha (RM 3), Chapati (RM 2) are not very much too highly priced but it was consistent and fantastically keen.
The kitchen also excels in biryani. Biryani Mutton Dum (RM 18.90), Biryani Chicken Dum (RM 15.90), and Biryani Chicken (RM 17.90) have prices pegged at the sharp end, but these delicious rice with your protein in it are at a good portion perfect for sharing. At communal dining, there is the option of smaller Briyani rice (RM 4).
The add on for hungry patrons, there is a splendid spread of dishes based on clever use of classic herbs and spices. Sink your teeth into some tasty slow cooked chunks of chicken and mutton with lovely mix of masala, spiced with sweet spices and pounded herbs were all outstanding. I love their Mutton Keema (RM 15.90), and Butter Chicken (RM 19.90). Also, spice levels are at authentic levels for the Lahori Chicken (RM 11.90) and Bhindi Masala (RM 11.90) but the creamy gravy were luscious and lovely to go with those bread or rice. Naans are best to go with Palak Paneer (RM 15.90), and despite the hindsight guilt feeling, I’d still say it’s worthy of the calories. Just make sure you balance this out accordingly (I’ve added 15 minutes to my daily yoga session for the next few days).
Speaking of masala and I can tell you it doesn’t just stopped at the dishes. We had the Masala tea hot (RM 3.50), Masala tea cold (RM 4) and Teh Tarik (RM 2) for that perfect ending for this satisfying meal. For some reason, this combo really worked out for that satisfaction guaranteed after meal sensations. Otherwise, there are those healthier options- Mango Lassi (RM 7.50), Mint Lassi (RM 6.50), Plain Lassi (RM 5.50), Watermelon Juice (RM 6.90), Lime Juice (RM 4.90), or the Teh O Ais (RM 2.30). Game lovers are well looked after with their super huge menu for beverages.
The rich, warmly spiced masala dishes and grains of delicious biryani rice is worth getting messy for; and those soft and chewy warm buttery chapatti makes the perfect foil. Forget about the cutleries, some things are worth remaining finger licking.
