Passions of Kerala @ Penang

Banana leaf rice is a traditional vegetarian dish of Southern India. It is usually served with rice on a piece of banana leaf, with few vegetables and curry on top. According to Wikipedia, the banana leaf is used as the coating on the banana leaf released by the hot rice will help in digestion.

The banana leaf rice set itself is usually cheap, as example, here at Passion of Kerala, it only cost RM5.50 for the White Rice Set, and RM6 for the Tomato Rice Set. Bear in mind that the rice is unlimited, same goes to the curry and the side dish for it. However, I don’t find the Tomato rice is nice as it seems besides the color, it taste the same as normal rice. Besides, the rice is also too sticky to my liking. One should also use hand to eat (instead of using fork and spoon like me) to enjoy it more, as finger licking is always good. 6.7/10

The curry fish @ RM4.50 is served in a small claypot. The curry taste good, and the fish is good enough for 3 of us too. 7.0/10
