Have you ever tried the dum biryani at Tasty Chapathi? During the busy lunch hour today, almost every patron at this North Indian restaurant in Kuala Lumpur had at least one bowl of dum biryani on the table.

Well, I decided to have it, as well. I opted for my favourite version: vegetarian vegetable dum biriyani.

They serve it in a stylish trapezium shaped plate.

The dish is made from long grain rice tossed in vegetables, paneer and vegetable gravy, decorated with sprinkles of finely cut paneer and coriander leaves. Your mouth starts watering even before the dish arrives as the aroma tickles your nostrils.

Emm! the taste is just as good as its aroma and looks. The perfect blend of spices. Be warned. It can be pedas (spicy) for some, but it sure is nice.

Served with raita on the side, the combination is simply savoury. The raita is yogurt mixed in finely cut cucumber and onions.

You can also opt for the chicken, mutton, prawn or fish special dum biryani (Price: RM15.90 to RM22.90 each).

For the vegetarians, you can also go for the special vege chicken and special vege mutton dum biryani (Price: RM15.90 to RM16.90).

A lovely lady beside my table was tucking in fish dum biryani. “The fish biryani is awesome. Not many restaurants serve fish biryani,” said Kit Yi.

“Even if you get it, sometimes it’s not cooked well. But here, I have yet to be disappointed. I always come here for the fish biryani. It is served with fish curry, which is equally awesome.”

The mackerel for the fish biryani is marinated with a blend of spices. It is then deep fried and tossed into the long grain biryani rice and fish gravy. When served, it is in its solid form, void of any fishy smell.

The Dum Biryani, a must try at Tasty Chapathi, served only for lunch.
