Banana Leaf Rice



If you are a regular at Indian restaurants, you will be familar with banana leaf rice.
Instead of bowls or plates, the rice is served on banana leaves. It is eaten together with vegetables and other cooked dishes. You also get to choose if you want fish, chicken curry or dhal to go with it.
Besides having a variety of cooked dishes like sambal prawn, beef rendang, most Indian restaurants have raw seafood and meat that they will fry for consumers on the spot.
Eating banana leaf rice is a happy experience. You'll need to try to know it :)

Oh my gosh, that two photos look soooooo GOOD!!

I love good curry but I only eat it during winter, when it's super cold outside and my tummy feels great when it's filled with warm and spicy food.
