Chatmasala ......... Good Indian Food in Greenwood Avenue

It was the 14th day of the Chinese New Year. I was set to go for a Chinese dinner with my parents for a "Lou Hei" but the Chinese dinner became an Indian one and a good one by the name of Chatmasala.

We drove into Greenwood Avenue and HY suggested that we walk into this cosy and very unassuming restaurant. She had a business meal here before and was impressed. I'll trust my wife when she says it's good. She's the picky one.

While at the door, Dhershini (proprietor of chatmasala) ushered us into her restaurant and quickly impressed us with her hospitality. She asked about our taste preference and then recommended the dishes that will most suit our palate.

Before we decide the dishes, we were recommended lassi (Indian's version of the yogurt drink). I went for the ginger lassi which I took to a liking very quickly. There are mango and strawberry flavoured ones too.

Ginger Lassi (S$6.50)

Dhershini introduced us to some of the popular dishes in her restaurants. Here's those that I had tried would recommend.

Naan ....... Garlic (S$2.50), Cheese (S$3.20), Butter (S$2.40). The garlic one is my favourite. It's HY's favourite as well.

Starter Platter (S$28.80) ....... Tofu, Fish Paste Cake, Basmati rice, papadum

Fish Paste Cake

Fried Tofu ..........

Basmati rice stuffed inside a papadum.

Keeala Fish Curry (S$15.80). The fish is fried and then dunked into the curry. However, the fish doesn't seem to be soaked in the curry for very long so its not mushy. Good stuff!

Fried fish inside the curry.

Kasturi Kebab (S$16.80). This is a chicken kebab and this taste really nice and tender. Must try!

Eggplant strips (S$10.80). This is good but very spicy hot!

For desert, we shared the Crispy Banana Roll (S$6.00)

Cost : about S$42 per person
