Located at the SS15 stretch of shops opposite Sime Darby Medical Centre (same row as Subang Jaya stalwarts Tomoe, Rakuzen and Souka), Big Singh Chapati has been attracting flocks of chapatti aficionados since its opening. The interiors are simple – white walls, a display counter of Indian sweets (carrot halwa, barfi, gulab jamun and the like), artificial plants to provide some green – but it’s a feast for the nose as the fragrances of masala tea, curries and the smoky tandoor fill the air. By the entrance is a well-floured counter where a team efficiently stretches, folds and griddles the chapatti – great entertainment when you’re queuing for a table.
While there’s a lunch menu for the budget conscious (prices start from RM5.90), the dinner menu is the highlight – chicken haryali, mutton dum briyani, a dedicated tandoor section, paneer palao, fish masala and more. This is a menu that wouldn’t look out of place in Brickfields. Try the fluffy butter chapatti with spice-laden mutton keema and palak paneer. Don’t forget the masala tea.
